"Best Linux Distro"

What do you like best?

I am a fan of manjaro for several reasons. First, I love the AUR. This is more of a feature of Arch, but the user repository essentially contains every single possible application. This makes installing any app really trivial and helps me get a new system running really quickly. I also love that everything is up to date AND nothing breaks. Manjaro brings a Ubuntu style release system on top of the rolling system of Arch. While I've never had anything break when I was using Arch, it is always nice knowing that the new packages are tested to work well before they are pushed to me. While this defeats the purpose of arch, it makes the user experience a little better. For the record I use Manjaro Gnome.

What do you dislike?

There isnt much I dislike. I am not a fan of the software the comes preinstalled with Manjaro Gnome, but its fine and pretty simple to re-theme myself and remove the bloat. The installer is O.K. at best, I personally prefer the ubuntu installer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should understand how linux works really really well before you try Manjaro. Arch is a very complicated system and you need a deep understanding to fully be able to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using Manjaro to help my development. Since it is running Linux under the hood, it makes setting up developer tools really easy and all programming related software are optimized for linux.

"Lightweight for speed but better for advanced users"

What do you like best?

I've tried Linux Mint and other options such as Arch but I like that Manjaro is more lightweight in comparison as it runs steam games faster so that I can also stream with better quality too

What do you dislike?

Installation can be smooth but when it is not, it's quite nerve wracking to troubleshoot. However, there is a active forum available for users that require support. I would probably dislike Manjaro more if I didn't have friends who are more advanced to help me out hence my title recommending that Manjaro is better for advanced users.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use the forum for support as much as possible. Everyone has to start somewhere and don't give up if you're feeling stuck. Manjaro can seem like it's not good for standard Windows users but it's known to have a easier installation process compared to Linux Arch

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Manjaro has helped me with business by improving the quality of my streams to attract and maintain viewer count. I also get to improve my OS operation experience by using and learning about Manjaro

What Operating System solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Great linux experience"

What do you like best?

I've been using Linux many years and tested different Linux distributions.

Lately i've been enjoying Arch Linux based distributions, and Manjaro just makes that experience very pleasant and so easy to install.

You can even choose from different flavors of DE

What do you dislike?

It have it's own repositories and do not use Arch Linux repositories.

This means it's always behind but also that the software released is more safe!

"Arch without the fuss"

What do you like best?

I like the ease of install and rational defaults the OS chooses for you. It's a breeze compared to installing Arch. It's a great way to get started with the Arch side of linux. Let me test pacman and rolling releases without the time involved with getting used to arch and doing everything from scratch.

What do you dislike?

In a VM the install wasn't as easy as installing Ubuntu in virtual box. After a few extra steps everything was working well though. On a regular install I'm sure the install would have run flawlessly

Recommendations to others considering the product

If Arch is a scary proposition for you give Manjaro a shot to see if you like Pacman etc...

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Manjaro was used for a web server. It did great for that purpose and I liked the UI that was the default on install.
