I have a PC with core i3 7th gen with 12 GB RAM , my laptop has 4 cores and i need to do vm for windows 10 for tableau , which is the best manjaro variant to install?? KDE,Xfce,Gnome,Cinammon?? (I never worked in window managers so don’t know how to work in QTile)
Whichever one you prefer.
Your specs are more than enough for any desktop environment.
VM part is bugging me , and that too for one app which is essential to me , everything else i shifted to windows i usually allocate 2 cores to VM , Is 2 cores enough for Manjaro’s KDE plasma DE atleast when running the VM ??
If you want to go any ‘lighter’ (which will only really equate to saving a few hundred MB of RAM at best) then you must use a WM.
Thanks for helping me decide I love Manjaro KDE too much , so i am moving on with my current kde setup
Honestly these days the general footprint of the Major DE’s are pretty comparable.
KDE is pretty tweakable as well … if you need to you can adjust the composition latency, kill baloo/indexing, generally tame effects, and more, along with all the normal linux configurations like swap.
There isnt really a big burden with Plasma on any relatively modern hardware … though you may wish to minimize the bells and whistles, depending on the situation.
