Manjaro Linux : Pro Linux ?

Linux has always been known as a Coder’s base but intuitive GUI and recent developments have made it much more normie-friendly. I mean you can hardly find something that can be done on Mac OS or Windows that Linux can’t do.

Manjaro Linux is yet another Linux Distribution but the point that makes it special it that it is ranked at 1st position on Distrowatch.com

It is a fast, user – friendly OS based on Arch Linux and primarily available for x86_64 architecture. It has intuitive installation procedure, automatic hardware detection, stable updates, ability to install multiple kernels, special bash scripts for graphics drivers and extensive customisation ( 😉 )

Moreover, it is available in many Desktop Environments :

Architect

: Manjaro-Architect is a fork of the famous Architect Linux installer by Carl Duff, that has been modified to install Manjaro instead of Arch Linux. It is a net-installer that downloads always the latest packages, so your system is always up to date after installation, regardless of how old your install media is.

GNOME

: desktop that breaks with traditional concepts and allows users to focus on their tasks. Desktop-specific applications are crafted with care and clearly defined by guidelines that make them more consistent to use.

My Personal Opinions 😉

I’ve always like choices in terms of desktop environments and that’s where Manjaro takes an edge.

I’ve personally used Manjaro GNOME edition which I found to be super easy and convenient.I didn’t feel any lag while using resource – demanding applications like Open Shot Video Editor.

But, It doesn’t bring with itself good drivers support that makes it frustrating for users to install drivers and that’s where it takes a back seat.

All in All, the distro is great but not perfect. 🙂
