  • 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.

I was trying for over a decade to switch to from Windows to Linux. Every time, no matter how hard I was trying the result was the same, back to windows. Until I met Manjaro the year 2016! It works perfect for me since then, on 3 different PCs. Never went back to windows since then. It's fast, super stable, easy to maintain, friendly forums, lots of packages available.
cons: I don't like the greenish theming, but it's easy to change it.

I installed the manjar without problems. In the first major update of 1.1GB when I rebooted I was not able to boot anymore and could not solve the problem. I installed another Distro Linux, but I managed to save the contents of the manjaro home. I really like the manjaro but I've always had these kinds of problems with it on various types of PCs and notebooks. Manjaro I love you but you're not for me.

Excellent distro for beginners. Easy installation process. Do try it in a VM before installing as you might want to change desktop environment. The possibilities are endless when it comes to tweaking to your needs. Support forums and wikis are top notch.
