  1. Hey Guys,
  2.  
  3. For the love of computers... do a review of Manjaro Linux.
  4.  
  5. I decided to give it a shot the other day and I am convinced that it is as easy to use as Mint and about 3 times as fast (also less buggy). I installed it to an ancient spare drive 20GB and I am so impressed that I am going to move the install to my main Linux drive.
  6.  
  7. I am using the KDE variety, it comes prepackaged with the latest Steam installed, as well as automatically installed the latest Nvidia driver. The default package selection and themes are wonderful.
  8.  
  9. I would describe Manjaro as the Linux Mint of Arch. I installed the Xfce variant in a vm and that absolutely flies as well.
  10.  
  11. Anyway here is a quick clip of how fast eclipse opens even while running kdenlive to take a screencap. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1bqpemWGW4

  13. I really think that this is the answer to Ubuntu going sideways and even though I love Mint - I am stunned at the speed and stability of Manjaro.
