I am new to linux. Was using windows for around 6/7 years on my hp notebook 15 . I am a student so i only use my laptop for Little Coding using VS code and sometime watching movies(not interested in gaimg). Because of the coronavirus Pendamic I am stuck in my village where internet connection is not so good. And also buying internet is very costly in my country when i am not using wifi… I have used Ubuntu and Zorin OS15.2 on my laptop don’t know why but i am not comfortable with them(also they don’t recognize my wifi driver which is 802.11b/g/n (1x1)) now i want to switch to Manjaro because everybody is recommending it.
So my question is Can i use this distro without updating it regularly? Because i will not be able to update it untill the Pendamic ends in my country. Or i should try something like elementary Os which gets update after a long time. Dabian or Arch don’t matter to me that much because i like trying exceptional things. Please somebody help me decide also i am adding my device info so you guys can suggest which DE will run most fuildly in my device.
