I’m a longtime, fairly not-technical linux user (~2004) and have used Manjaro KDE for several years now without an install or re-install. I do not remember installs fondly! So this past week I upgraded an old Desktop PC to new NUC mini PC (Intel Core i5-8279U, 16GB RAM, 512GB NVMe SSD, Windows 11 Pro)
Except for a brief install failure (had to disable “quick boot” in the BIOS), the auto shrinking of Windows partition and the whole installer process was so nice. Then Manjaro booted up and everything worked. no tweaking anything. Even the dual monitors (1 HDMI and 1 HDMI to VGA via adapter) worked no problem. Took 1 hour tops; I set aside my whole Saturday given past experience.
Thanks Manjaro Team!
