Sahne303: There is a community-edition with gnome, it's linked on the main manjaro website
Tome4kkkk: Is there a live media of manjaro with Gnome? Or Manjaro with Gnome for that matter?
Tome4kkkk: You do know about running linux from live media, e.g. live USB, right? Also you can install Linux on any drive, including external HDDs and pendrives.
Clonezilla is another great tool. Just do a backup image of your current system and you're free to go haywire :) After you're finished you just restore the image. The images are small and backup/restore operations very fast.
Steven Smyth: I just downloaded it and installed into a VB machine, and it looks good, but I am building a new PC for the express purpose of running Linux, so, I have a lot of candidates (Ubuntu 13.04 being the front runner) but this is looking really good so far. It's hard for me to tell unless I run it on the hardware I am building if it will perform up to snuff.
androidRS: I love Linux, but I'm always freaking it up somehow so that it has to be reinstalled...
ringo de kroon: en august comes 0.87 :p review that :p
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.
Kingdaro: He just means an unmodified version of Arch.
Daviljoe193: Remember, run sudo pacman -Syyu two times to fix pacman.
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!
Matt Runion: "Vanilla" Arch is the straight Arch distribution from archliux.org.
Mark Gailmor: what is vanilla arch? Are you speaking of arch linux with the vanilla kernel?
Corey Ptaszek: Conky. That's a theme though, not the default look.
argh harz: there have been a lot of improvements since 0.8.2....really a lot. it is much more GUI based now. even easier than 0.8.2.
Jango1989: Loved the review!
otend: I decided to check out Manjaro after this, and I'm entirely pleased. I like Arch, but I don't like having to deal with things at a lower level. This basically satisfies my need for an Arch that lets you configure the stuff you care about while taking care of the stuff you don't.
VikingNightmare: thanks for the info m8!
Jukka Kammer: It is a a difficult decision to make but manjaro might be the better option in terms of stability and ease of use. You should just download it and use it in live mode
VikingNightmare: thanks for the info. I would actually try out Arch linux but i still have a little bit too much ubuntu un mi system for that, but i am slowly eliminating it since they turned too corporate for my taste. But i have to choose between manjaro and antergos, and i honestly don't know which to choose.
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.
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 :)
VikingNightmare: Hello, i would like to ask if the conky sidebar was already included, or you configured it this way?
Mojito skurt: he was a bit of a chav ye.. but you arre right.. he does look like him hahah :p
Aditya Sule: You look like Robert Webb from Mitchell and Webb!!! Great Video! :)
Jesus Bejarano: What have to do that with what i said in my previous comment?.Voyager is also XFCE like Manjaro (and have a Windows start bar too), i just saying that Voyager Desing approach and aesthetic is more polish and beautifull than Manjaro's.
lucky88shp: And, why would you say that?
BTW, I like Windows start bar like layout of Manjaro better..
Jesus Bejarano: Voyager 13.04 please.
hytlerson: damn... KISS - keep it simple, stupid. This applies to actual kisses as well
ipreferns: I would say voyager. based on stability, and definitely looks! its VERY light too. I get tempted to go the arch way but i'm new. and in the end you can basically just update your kernel anytime you want anyways. but thats not always the best thing to do anyways so better for me to let the pros decide my kernel. i think the new voyager kernel should be the newest... later this month.
edocamoro: hey @infinitelygalactic, you should make another video about this distro, the information represented here is obsolete (the pacman-gui has been replaced by pamac, there is a graphical installer, etc)
And you should talk about how this distro manages the packages than come from archlinux, and how it's more stable than arch. and of course, more user friendly, and the very active community behind this distro.
edocamoro: This is an amazing distro. Everybody should give it a try
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.
5betagta: Obviously cause it's arch
TheRealUncleNinja: noooooo. Read Allan McRae's blog for some reasons why.
TheRealUncleNinja: Arch is the best Arch fork.
5betagta: Archbang is the best arch fork.
Ograws: Should I install this over Arch?
ChurchNewCreation: why dont you post system requirement ?
MrMadchicken1andonly: XD Exactly.
Mjolkmaestro: I hadn't thought about it like that; it makes sense! :)
lucky88shp: LOL :D
How would I know! I guess I am too awesome...I don't need "thumbs up" to be on top!
MrMadchicken1andonly: How is this a top comment when it doesn't even have one like?
Menelaos Papalexopoulos: very nice review!!! thnks
Matthias Schuster Scharmer: See it from the other Side:
People how wish GUI`s (grafical installer comes too in Manjaro in weeks) and preconfigs are happy about AUR, Rolling Release, Community and Performance - like me ^_^
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
Jim Septuagenarian: Thanks for your excellent review.
I will try Manjoro w/ Openbox desktop.
What screencaster are you using?
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 recommendations?
CAP198462: Manjaro is overrated in my opinion, CTK and Cinnarch are more comfortable to use.
