It’s great for everyone who wants archLinux but are too stupid or lazy to do it themselves.
Basically, the best distro for me.
Lyniven44767dUsed it for 2 years on personal and work laptop. No "big" issues encountered that weren't my fault. On a side note The Architect iso they provide does its job pretty well.
Switched to endeavour linux about 6 months ago tho (no particular reason)
Bubbles68327dI’ve had some problems with it but it’s not a bad distro, just a little unstable sometimes (from my experience)
I used it a lot and it's my favorite quick setup distro.
If you want an RR distro with all its pros and cons, but not the hassle of manual installation, and better tested than Arch, it's a good choice. On top of that, you have access to the Arch User Repositiories.
I tried Manjaro Cinnamon live on my desktop, and it worked OOTB, including multimedia. My laptop hasn't yet arrived, so no test on that.
It works. MHWD is great, lot of the stuff that you usually need to tweak or adjust is already taken care of.
I've had it for close to three years.
Some issues I've had in the beginning (don't know if some are still a thing):
- If you go for full disk encryption, the keyboard defaults to US for the disk password prompt. It will restore your install preference after that.
- Pacman will sometimes complain if you mix pip and pacman. More specifically if you ask pacman to uninstall something. So I exclussively use pip to manage anything related to python dev.
- I have a RT3290 card (bluetooth and wifi). The wifi works out of the box. I managed to make the bluetooth work once with rtbth-dkms-git. It lasted untill the next kernel upgrade and hasn't worked since. But it's no biggie since my headphones also work with a cable.
Other than the issues above, I love it.
