    Ah yes, manjaro. It was my daily for two years because I had zero interest in fucking around with arch.

    @Root Why wouldn't you like pacman? It did everything I needed absolutely perfectly so far.

    @PrivateGER I asked him why he liked it. I said nothing about my own preference.

    Honestly I’m curious about other people’s experiences with it vs other package managers like dpkg/apt, yum, rpm, etc.

    I prefer pacman to apt mostly because I disliked configuring ppa and the releases like jessie, stretch, buster, stable, etc. I tried arch, liked it and been with it for long. And makepkg + aur is the same tools repo maintainers use so it feels quite simple to make your own stuff using the same stack.

    Manjaro is decent, but they lag a bit behind arch sometimes, it caused me a few issues in the past on a gaming rig with wine from aur. That was before proton though.

    I also prefered pop os to manjaro on a gaming rig only because it has a better ootb experience with Nvidia optimus prime video cards setup.

    I prefer window managers over desktops, but that’s the freedom of choice using Linux

    @Root In my experience, it just works™.
    None of that apt repo and ppa stuff, it just works. The AUR is for everything else.
    Beautiful simplicity.
