  • 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 bought an HP laptop with Windows 10 and thought I would try it out, but after a couple of days
found myself installing Linux OS on my laptop and replacing the Windows os
I tried out various flavors of Linux and ended up with Manjaro.
The current version is a solid, fast system. I just think it's great.

I use Manjaro with the Regolith-i3 desktop on my laptop and it works beautifully.
I've been using this setup for 4 or 5 months, usually, I will change my OS every couple of weeks
as I get bored with the system or things start to get buggy, or something....

To get Regolith use pamac with AUR enabled. Pretty simple.

Applause to the Manjaro team

Testing out Manjaro Openbox for more than a week and I'm impressed, from installation to final setup not a problem one. I mainly run graphics programs (ie Blender, Krita, Gimp, etc....), usually by day three I know if it will work and the majority of times I have problems to resolve or issues I have to live with. Not this time, and one of the reasons I was impressed, the system I'm using is an Asus Vivo book 17, Intel core i5, not one of the most Linux friendly systems out there.
Running Blender in cycles mode in windows on this system is painful but running it under Manjaro Openbox its awesome (in comparison). Blender does some heavy number crunching and needs all the resources you can free up, hence minimalism is key to providing every ounce of resource for a system like blender, Manjaro Openbox provides the essential tools to fine tune and for me that means faster render times and this time no crashing, hangups, or funky little glitches.

For the first time I can't find any critiques (other than subjective things like layout or themes), or nag about an issue with wifi, bluetooth, or graphic cards. I'm afraid to say, this distro looks to be a permanent resident on this system. Finally.

Thanks to the Manjaro team for their Openbox version.

I think it definitely deserves a solid 10. I like the fact you can choose between free and open source or proprietary drivers from boot prior to installation. I'm using Kde and have just updated the kernel with the very easy to use kernel manager from Manjaro.

At the login screen you get some nice colours and just a fresh not in your face look. Notting into the desktop you get a very clean look and the theme they use looks slick and does not get in the way of the user experience.

I noticed onlyoffice as the default suite so I went ahead and activated the aur repository and then installed libre office as well as Google chrome, Edge browser and one of my favourite apps the Web apps manager from the aur.

Ram usage is stable and there was not any real slow down in my use. Multi tasking is straightforward and you can easily snap windows left or right. It comes with all the usual kde goodies but I usually don't use kmail but instead Gmail via a Web app icon on my desktop.

Overall I'm very impressed with this release and always look forward to the next. This is a solid and stable distribution.
