hope this help well i am new here so please explain in simple terms

I’m guessing you are installing through the archinstall script?
I haven’t used it in a while but if you want to simplify your install I would just choose a Desktop Enviroment (since you are asking this question I think it would be best for you or practice your install in VM til you know what you want)

well i installed from official site of arch but now while ricing most people are suggesting me to use xorg or something by the way from wiki and guide i have try to understand xorg but cant get my brain around it is there a simpler version out there to help me understand xorg

I guess you already checked the wiki regarding display servers ?

Also, I dunno the final goal here, but why don’t you install endeavourOS ? :enos: :enos_flag: :rocketa_purple:
