Manjaro is a user-friendly Linux distribution based on the independently developed Arch operating system. Within the Linux community, Arch itself is renowned for being an exceptionally fast, powerful, and lightweight distribution that provides access to the very latest cutting edge - and bleeding edge - software. However, Arch is also aimed at more experienced or technically-minded users. As such, it is generally considered to be beyond the reach of those who lack the technical expertise (or persistence) required to use it.
Developed in Austria, France, and Germany, Manjaro provides all the benefits of the Arch operating system combined with a focus on user-friendliness and accessibility. Available in both 32 and 64 bit versions, Manjaro is suitable for newcomers as well as experienced Linux users. For newcomers, a user-friendly installer is provided, and the system itself is designed to work fully 'straight out of the box'.

Me love you long time
Very nice, thanks for good job guys
I like it the most, the i3wm version is my go to distro. I nuked it today, but I went full retard and used an install script from wacom driver and it killed the HID. :D I am going in again, it was so smooth. On the other hand, KDE flavor is horrible, the UI is so buggy like microsoft's windows UI, it's so heavy and NOT simple by design, that's the reason for its bugness.
I downloaded and installed Manjaro thinking it would be a decent out fo the box operating system for a novice. The software offered as part of the default install is not bad, but the following problems really drag it down, and I will very likely end up changing systems again: - VLC media player doesn't even open - Steam doesnt work, unable to load driver, even though I applied the 'Purge Libraries' fix - I couldn't get ecryptfs to generate the Private folder - The firewall needs to be switched on every time the computer is booted up - The screen locks every 15 mins or so of inactivity, nowhere have I found anywhere to change settings to extend the time - It only detects a wifi connection, and not my ethernet connection - Since the latest update (today), there is no option to install any new software in the software centre, where there was once a button is now blank. I didn't have a single one of these problems with Xubuntu, out of the box solution this is not.
