Matt Ehler: I love your videos, but if I could make a slight criticism, it seems as if
you talk about DEs almost as much as you talk about the actual distro.
When you can run a number of DEs on this, it'd be nice to hear more about
discussion on the actual distro.
Mubarak Alrashidi: #Manjaro #MangaroLinux #Linux #Arch #ArchLinux #Review #Video
Kingdaro: He just means an unmodified version of Arch.
5betagta: Obviously cause it's arch
Jesus Bejarano: Then why are you watching a video about it?.
Christian Lavina: ubuntu base + xfce 4.10 + synapse + slingshot launcher + faenza icons =
fairly beautiful desktop.
DLiberator78: Thanks for reviewing this distro. I always wanted to install Arch as I hear
it is really good but was scared of it's terminal based usage. This distro
seems to make downloading packages easier and I love XFCE it is my
favourite desktop so that for this review. I will check it out.
Menelaos Papalexopoulos: very nice review!!! thnks
VikingNightmare: thanks for the info m8!
Adrian G: Will you ever do a "What's the best Linux Distro" video ?
Tembram: what flavor and version did you try to install?
MistahElite: Looks interesting.
Phaytal Error: There is no such thing as "best linux distro" it depends entirely on if the
distro you use suits you or not. I personally feel Gentoo and Arch are the
best linux distros, whereas other swear by Crux, Debian, Slackware, Ubuntu,
Lunar Linux, LFS, Puppy Linux, etc. As the old saying goes, "Beauty is in
the eye of the beholder." :)
Matthias Schuster Scharmer: I personaly absolutly prefer Manjaro because of the much better community
than in Sabayon and XFCE is the Main DE in Manjaro
Luis Hernandez: Manjaro hands down. The best user friendly distro out there (IM0), its also
really stable. Good driver support, and you can find all the help you need
in their forum.
Wolveon: W-why? D:
Caleb La Grange: I LOVE MANJARO
Elya Wygoda: Great distro, i have been using it for the past month on a very old laptop,
and it's running perfectly fine. I used to be on a distribution called
Nosonja(xfce+arch) but the packages were updated way too much, i mean, i
like bleeding edge software but, the way arch does it is overkill(for me)
and it broke my system several times. Great review IG, keep'em coming!
bierce21: Hey ig can u look at frugalware ive always been tempted to try it but the
iso is like 4gigs to download
Frank Rith: You seem to have a broad understanding of the Linux distros and how one can
tweek them out. I am new to Linux and as a result I am just starting out
with the Zorin 6. Do I need to install any special package to get the same
effect of large mouse pointer with the trail effect? Can you make a
tutorial video on this? Thanks.
uss snooky: You might check this: techradar
It's for router but you can use it as a server
Corey Ptaszek: Conky. That's a theme though, not the default look.
Juan Sánchez Larrauri: I tried to install Elementary OS because it is definitely beautiful, but
also somewhat unstable for being in beta. Need of stability and lightness,
I'm thinking of installing sabayon Manjaro or both with XFCE. Any
Aaron Dennis: For a distro that is technically still in Beta...it is very good. I am
running a Gnome setup with Manjaro and I hope the team chooses to release a
pure Gnome edition. I made mine from the Cinnamon Edition. While not that
light at startup, it shows its Arch roots with very snappy performance.
lucky88shp: LOL :D How would I know! I guess I am too awesome...I don't need "thumbs
up" to be on top!
Simon Saint-Gilles: According to the Manjaro website, it's short for Kilimanjaro i.e. the
mountain in Africa, so it's the same "j" as in jockey.
cphacksone: mamma's sweet tater pie!
ChurchNewCreation: why dont you post system requirement ?
Jukka Kammer: 0.8.5.2 XFCE does not have conky, Openbox has but not the one on the video.
Conkys are rather easy to install though :)
CAP198462: when it reboots after install about ten seconds later every light on the
laptop starts flashing and it freezes and dies
bamdadkhan: i know this question is a tad unrelated, but do you have any experience
installing fglrx legacy on arch? on ubuntu 12.10 it fails because x.org is
too recent. i'm guessing arch has the same problem, but it would be nice to
know for sure..
InfinitelyGalactic: I did :-) My roommate watching a football game next door...
Yaseen M K Noorani: Looks like a very nice distro but can't see myself using it, I'm thinking
of installing Arh this week
Jesus Bejarano: In opose to the not very polish desing of Manjaro xfce theme, please do a
review of Voyager Linux 12.10, is beautiful.
Loren Kuich: I keep installing new distros :P
Matt Runion: Excellent review! I've watched quite a few reviews over the years and many
are just some person clicking menus and talking about how "cool" something
is. This review was very informative. As for Arch, I have used it for 6+
years. I have my family (wife, kids -- even the 5 year old) using Arch at
home. We "don't do Windows"! I was thinking of putting Manjaro on their
machines so the wife and older child can do some "self-management". I think
it will work well! Thanks again!
i i: first
NehalemUnleashed: Faith in humanity... Gone again.
cphacksone: it sux
MrMadchicken1andonly: XD Exactly.
Elie Obeid: off topic question, I dual boot my laptop, windows for cs class and .net
and all that stuff, linux for me and my lovely python, i was using mint 12
on my desktop, when i bought my new laptop i installed ubuntu 14, i didn't
like it as much as mint, so i'd love to install mint 13, and remove ubuntu,
but how to do so without losing my stuff, can i back them up somehow since
mint and ubuntu are debian based, if yes, does someone have a tutorial?
OmenX13: Another great distro review - Thanks IG.
Dave crabs: Been using this on my laptop for a couple of months now. Never had a single
problem with programs or stability and am still loving it. The Manjaro
forums are very friendly and helpful too.
The7thSin: 4:45 did u hear that?
Mark Gailmor: what is vanilla arch? Are you speaking of arch linux with the vanilla
truth_dekay: i dont have a har drive ..so am i ale to substitute the hd for a 4gb usb
stick ...can i install from the cd boot up onto the usb
Getyoswagon: You don't want to use deb packages on arch based distros. However, it is
likely that the package you're looking for is maintained in pacman. If not,
compiling from source is actually easier than it sounds, so don't be afraid
to do that!
JezdziecBezNicka: I was put off by Chakra because they're moving away from Arch. Manjaro on
the other hand looks very promising as an user-friendly Archlinux flavor.
