  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

Of all the distros out there, I was seduced by Manjaro after decades using Windows. Manjaro makes me have good feelings when I use it and I have never had any problems with it. I like using Gnome more because of the workflow but Manjaro's KDE made me change my mind. I'm very happy to be able to migrate to a solid, easy-on-the-eyes, stable and fast Linux distro. Congratulations to everyone at Manjaro for offering such a well-finished and easy-to-use product. Long live Manjaro and may its qualities be promoted more quickly and passionately as it deserves all the praise possible as it is not an option to any other system, for me it has become a standard to be followed.

De todas as distro que há eu fui seduzido pelo Manjaro depois de décadas usando Windows. Manjaro me faz ter bons sentimentos quando o uso e nunca tive nenhum tipo de problema com ele. Gosto mais de usar Gnome por causa do workflow mas o KDE do Manjaro me fez mudar de idéia. Estou muito feliz por poder migrar para uma distro Linux sólida e bonita aos olhos, estável e rápida. Parabén a todos do Manjaro por oferecer um produto tão bem acabado e de fácil utilização. Vida longa ao Manjaro e que suas qualidades sejam divulgadas com mais rapidez e paixão pois merece todo o elogio possível pois não é uma opção a qualquer outro sistema, para mim se tornou um padrão a ser seguido.

version: stable. As Manjaro is rolling, mine just rolled to 24.0.0.

I have been using Manjaro as a main distro of choice now for about 5 years, time flies, it feels like 2 years maybe. Manjaro is one of only two distros that I would recommend, ever, period.

I use the community edition with Cinnamon desktop, not their 3 main editions. I have tried over and over to run Xcfe, KDE or Gnome - nope. They don't work for me :) Once you have worked with a real desktop, the other fall short. I could write a book, but that is not the point in this review. In short, some of my concerns have become more focused and vindicated with KDE Plasma 6 and the new Gnome disaster which dumbs down app after app (File, File Roller and many more now).

Manjaro Pros:
Makes Arch installable for non-basement dwellers. [ PS: on an Arch forum, never let them know you are running a derivative and not pure, pure Arch - unless you like be be sworn at. Unfortunately I am serious. ]
Software is up to date, system is stable.
Cinnamon is a pleasure.
Staggeringly massive choice of software. { exception: see Cons }

Manjaro Cons:
All those updates chew data / bandwidth. Not for anyone on a limited, metered or unstable connection.
Beware in the AUR, there are many packages that are rubbish.

Last realese 24 with KDE, good work on old pc with i3 2100 + 2gb ram and 120 gb ssd. System start fastest but littebit freezes because need more ram. I hope the ssd will not fail and you will be able to sit on this release for a year.
Mint not started on this pc configuration. Manjaro KDE good for custom and much userfriendly, have all soft when u need discord/teamsppeak and etc.

Pros:
*Stable
*Good optimization
*Work on potatoe pc

Cons:
*Tor doesn't work, trouble with mirror and not started.
