Manjaro hardware detection is the soul of this distro. Arch based OS on very very old laptop like my own (the damn thing is falling apart) is time-consuming and not something that a lot of people can afford in that sense but that is not the case with Manjaro. How those guys that developed this distro made it better than Windows 10 it is a mystery to me but I am glad they did.

İf you have google account you should use GNOME desktop. And if you want to use rolling, stable and easy distro you should use Manjaro.
Manjaro Gnome is really very good choice for daily user. After playing and installing usefull gnome extensions you can have pretty productive desktop and distro.
A nice tip : You can use dash to dock and dash to panel together. Dash to dock to launch apps and dash to panel to manage windows and system tray with top icon plus after tweaking them.
After Debian based distros I am very happy with Manjaro.
