The best distro, deserves the 1st place on the list. It is exceptionally stable for a rolling release, has excellent driver support, huge amount of software in the official and AUR repos, pacman - one of the best package manager, well polished XFCE DE which I have been using last 3 years. Everything is polished and works fluently.

All of my life i had only Microsoft, from 95 edition to Win10, for me the best where WindowsXP. At the moment Microsoft have a lot of fails with update system andnow i try to linux. Big WOW! Every linux from Manjaro, Mint, Ubuntu, OpenSuse, Tail and Fedora everything is better than Windows 10. I see everything what happen on my machine, no more fake or something else. When you crash something then you can format and install in 30 minutes. My system rank: No1 Windows XP, no2 Manjaro ...... nr 99 Windows10 xD
