[Statement] The future of Manjaro Linux
« on: 08. July 2014, 19:08:09 »
Hi community,

Manjaro started a couple of years ago as a hobby project and has quickly grown. The forum now has over 4560 posting members (and 7753 members in total), we have a wide array of community editions, and the number of downloads every week is truly impressive:

Edition   Updated   Downloads (weekly)
xfce   09/06/14   5301
kde   09/06/14   2281
openbox   09/06/14   1702
Cinnamon   21/06/14   725
LXQT   09/06/14   571
netinstall   09/06/14   544
PekWM   20/06/14   430
Enlightenment   09/06/14   263
MATE   10/06/14   257
Gnome   25/02/14   252
Netbook   22/02/14   214
Fluxbox   20/06/14   159
xfce-minimal   09/06/14   127
LXDE   24/02/14   81
Total   12907

and this is just from Sourceforge - there will be many more downloading from torrent!

As a testement to success of the Manjaro project so far, two other distributions use Manjaro as a base for their own releases: Sonar, a distribution targeting the needs of computer users who require assistive technologies, and Netrunner Rolling, a KDE-based distribution sponsored by Blue Systems (a company that also sponsors another well-known KDE-based distribution: Kubuntu!).

We're also looking forward to collaborating with other distributions on our newest operating system installer. You will already be familiar with Thus and how easy it makes getting Manjaro installed - with our new software project, Calamares, we will aim to create a "unified" installer, bringing together the good work of other distributions and helping everyone in the process!

However, none of this can happen without the community, whether in the forum, on IRC, or helping out on Github or Transifex. You are what makes Manjaro successful!

As some of you may have noticed there have been some recent changes to the Manjaro development team. We welcomed back a number of team members along with some who were brand new, and some team members have moved on.

As is always the case with open source software projects, and particularly those so geographically widespread (and Manjaro is particularly lucky in having representatives from every continent), circumstances can change.

The team wants to assure you, the community and users of Manjaro, that the core of the project is progressing exactly as before. No matter how the membership of the development team may change, the team is always committed to help make Manjaro the best distribution out there!

Kind regards,

The Manjaro Development & Support Team

You all can be proud on what you achieved in this relative short time.
I'm growing very fond of this piece of art, that Manjaro is.
Thanks, and I hope that it will last for a long time.
Cheers  8)

I really enjoy Manjaro and I'm glad to hear that it's still going strong.

I'll use this occasion to thank the team behind it all, both past and present members - your combined effort made Manjaro what it is today and thank you for that.

Good going guys. I hope Manjaro remains Manjaro as it is known today and does not become Gnome that tries to turn PCs into Tablets (Gnome 3.x) or Canonical that destroyed their beautiful distro with tons of bloatware.
Do mark thread solved if done by editing your original post and prepending [Solved] in subject.

@PingoDindo, the good thing about manjaro is the choice of desktops you can choose from.

A lot of people really like Gnome/Unity If you don't like it that is your choice this is Linux use what suits you

philm, This is very good news indeed. Can't wait to see what 0.9.0 look like or how it going to function. I'm enjoying openrc! Manjaro is going to strive on what make a good distro!!! ;D




Just wish people stop bring argument in post like this! One that bring good news on how manjaro have grown(good news to/for manjaro in general). Don't you think it getting silly now?
