When executed, Archey provides a visually appealing ASCII art logo of the Arch Linux distribution, representing its simplicity and lightweight nature.

It also shows the total number of package updates available, enabling users to stay up to date with the latest releases and improvements. Additionally, Archey displays the current date and time.
Archey allows customization to some extent by modifying the configuration file. Users can easily change the ASCII art logo, add custom text strings, and modify various settings, making it more personalized.
