"Manjaro Arm is Awesome" - review by ETA PRIME

Manjaro Arm is one of the best-operating systems for single board computers like the Raspberry Pi 3 4, ODROID N2, Rockpro64 that I've ever used and in this video, I show you how to install it on your SIngle Board Computer "SBC" of choice.
It's based on Arch Linux so it is a bit different from Debian and Ubuntu-based OS's that you may have used but you need to give this a try because Manjaro Arm is Awesome!

Manjaro is the new Ubuntu.

Because I have no idea (with XU4, ARMv7) I have to stay with Ubuntu :(

Nice review, a youtuber with more than 280k subscriber... nice advertising for manjaro :slight_smile:

I'm no youtuber, but I was going to post a similar thought here. Manjaro's Pi version is far superior to Arch, Fedora, and - yes - Raspian. It is amazingly fast (even with GNOME) and just works.

Thanks. It means a lot to us, that people like what we do. :slight_smile:

Please do share the link of your youtube video about Manjaro.

Maybe they are just responding to the one that is posted in the origination of this thread ?

Thanks to the Majaro ARM Team for your work. I was saying that I am not a youtuber (unlike the OP). But I may try to add a video just to show how great it is.

I'm not just saying that b/c I love Manjaro. I've run most of the main distros at one point or another -- on both Pi and regular -- but was really surprised at how well the Manjaro ARM build ran. Great, great. work.
