Huge heartfelt “Thank You” to the Manjaro linux developer/tester/documentation folks!!
I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T430 which is now running Manjaro Linux only. The installation experience was great because th installation guide is really good. I just had to follow it and install Manjaro Linux. I did a vanilla install.
After installing the updates, going through the infinality installation instructions given here (which was not too difficult to follow), I am all set. It indeed is a slick computing experience.
Pamac is simply awesome. I could easily install a lot of required tools pretty easily.
I was on a different linux OS earlier and it was great, but many of the required packages were at a considerably older versions. Manjaro being a rolling distro seems to have the updated versions of most of the tools I need.
Although familiar with linux command line, it will take me a while to get used to manjaro’s pacman and ilk, but looking forward to learning it.
Big thanks once again.
