A couple of months back, I finally switched over to a new laptop. The first thing I did was erase all traces of Windows from it, and install Linux Mint, which I have used for quite a while in the past on a different computer.
However, I now want to orient myself a bit and learn more about other Linux distributions. After doing some research, I learned that Manjaro would be a good option to try out.
My laptop contains a 128 Gigabyte SSD (and also a 1 Terabyte HDD), and right now ± 70 Gigabyte is used by Linux Mint and my encrypted home folder, leaving about 40 Gigabyte of free space (boot loaders, swap space etc. take up the last 10 GB).
I am wondering: Is this enough to install one of the editions of Manjaro? Would it be smartest to install the XFCE edition as it seems more lightweight on disk usage, or is this not true?
Also, are there gotchas to be aware of when attempting to install Manjaro alongside an already existing Linux version?
