Project Description

Manjaro is a user-friendly Linux distribution based on the independently developed Arch operating system. Within the Linux community, Arch itself is renowned for being an exceptionally fast, powerful, and lightweight distribution that provides access to the very latest cutting edge - and bleeding edge - software. However, Arch is also aimed at more experienced or technically-minded users. As such, it is generally considered to be beyond the reach of those who lack the technical expertise (or persistence) required to use it.

It's been a while since the latest images have been available but only as RC1. While testing the LiveUSB everything worked great. Excellent hardware detection, even for my troublesome ASUS Eee PC. I went ahead and installed the system only to find out why it is still a release candidate... After installation I was greeted with a very basic, non-customized XFCE desktop and a system which didn't detect my hardware as the LiveUSB did. Since it was too troublesome for me to check what the system needed to be as snappy and customized as the LiveUSB I wiped the drive again and installed a LXDE 64-bit version of Manjaro. I really wanted a 32-bit for this laptop but I guess times have moved beyond...
+ LiveUSB has excellent hardware detection and everything works out of the box. + Very fast and snappy on old systems.
- After installation pretty much every Manjaro customization is not present. - Hardware detection after installation is default and not as good as the LiveUSB.

Extremely useful for old or low resource machinery. As such, only LTS kernels are offered which is generally fine for the intended target systems anyhow. Jonathon the maintainer is doing sterling work with the resources and time available to him. The flagship desktop environment is XFCE as per Manjaro and has the same look and feel. Manjaro-Architect is included on the ISO so if you want to install something else instead you can do so.
Very good support system via the Manjaro forum An increasing number of supported packages from both archlinux32 and manjaro repositories
The snapshot ISO is not refreshed at the same frequency as the main Manjaro snapshots are so if you need to do a clean install be ready for a large number of updates to download.
