Manjaro is based on Arch and developed in Austria France and Germany. Countries known for Weisswurst Sauerkraut, huge Daivid Hasselhoff CD collections and snails, but also quality and persistence.
So could it be? Can the "complicated" Arch who demands tech minded and experienced people (everybody saying something else; are not using it or Lying ) be made easily accesible to the common user?
Simply install and go and start enjoying the very latest of software always without having the hassle of installing every six months? With graphical package managers automated install with automatic detection of hardware and dto automatic install of drivers?
This almost sounds to good to be true so I was ready to write it off when I discovered that they also maintain their own repos. Then it could work - In Arch some dev is in the mood to implement systemd this week so you better be able to refurnish your system bigtime. If you miss that week and go for an upgrade one month later you are in serious trouble and in for a lot of work.
Arch is not for those who update once in a while it is more for everyday users with experience. And Arch is very honest about that - I even get the feeling that they do not want the newbies over there.
If you are to lazy to do your own research you will probably be told off in their forums. And that is pretty fair too: Why should someone else work their but off if you yourself are not doing the same?
So after having scared all the newbies away from Arch is Manjaro an option for them?
I know the GUI package manager pacmanxg; it is only depending on X and makes install and maintenance pretty easy. It removes orphans and syncs repos and even finds the three fastest repos for you - if you so desire.
It also gives you access to AUR so there is virtually no limit to what you can install. and it will always be the latest.
To good to be true? Sit tight - yours truly is going to find out.....
