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.

Happily running Manjaro! No problem updating or breaking my system.
My pro tips:
Do NOT Add/Remove Software via Manjaro.
Instead, Use FLAHUB to install apps. It is standalone apps and there is no worry to break any system component or cause incompatibilities while upgrade or updating via flathub.

Everything just work from Flathub. Firefox, LibreOffice...etc.


I give Manjaro 10/10 because everything pretty much works flawlessly. OS is running the latest and greatest kernel..
Manjaro + Flathub = Best Linux distro :-)

Been rocking Manjaro since 2015 cant remember the versio but have loved it from day one.... used to be a linux mint user but i akways wanted to be able to update to newest software without reinstalling system. Now if i can get last 2 pieces of to very unique windows programs to work will switch my desktop over to Manjaro at 100 percent but now laptop have for years now running Manjaro at 100 percent and not going back. Huge Kde fan so the Kde plasma version is my choice of desktop for me. For me only bad thing i can say is getting my HP.Laserjet to.properly scan and work would be a great help.

After decades of using Windows, I found my way to Linux. As a beginner, it was not easy to find the right distribution to replace Windows 10. The Linux bible by Michael Kofler, trade journals and websites were my helpers. Many things lead you into the Debian/Ubuntu world. However, Ubuntu sometimes takes very strange detours. Debian for beginners is still a no go. Linux Mint was able to inspire me for a few years. I was never really happy with MX-Linux or XFCE. I only felt really liberated and updated with Linux Manjaro version 17, which was a big leap forward for me without losing the stability of the Debian world. For me, KDE narrowly won the race ahead of Gnome on the desktop. Defensively rolling is a great idea and if you slowly get to know your way around, you can set up a dual boot system with all devices (decades old or new) in just a few minutes and use other operating systems at the same time.

After years, there are still many more operating systems to try out. Fedora, opensuse or others that occupy the top spots temporarily or long-term, but none of them have been able to separate me from Manjaro in the productive area, not even Arch as the original or EndeavorOS as another fork. Now I'm very happy with version 24, which runs very smoothly and securely from the very old Acer8943G to the current XMG machine.
