Good evening, people of the Manjaro forum
Ever since i first began experimenting with Linux in VMs, i’ve always wanted to run it on real hardware.
My biggest issue was always getting the real hardware. The only computers I own are a Windows 10 laptop with UEFI firmware and a Chromebook. My grandmother recently got a new computer and she offered me her old one. Which is an old Dell Dimension 3000, early-2000’s Windows XP machine. Fairly decent office box for the time. A Pentium 4 processor, 512 MB DDR memory. Now I finally have hardware to run Linux on! I’ve been distro-hopping for around a year now. Started on Ubuntu, then tried Mint, Fedora, Elementary, Manjaro, Antergos and even the Revenge installer. I’ve always come back to Manjaro though. Just the simplicity, reliability, and security of Arch matched with the beauty of many DEs appeals to me greatly. My problem, and the purpose of this post is that i noticed that on the downloads page on Manjaro’s website, there are only x64 downloads, when i need an i386 or x86 OS for the Dimension. Is Manjaro not offered in 32-bit anymore? Are there special versions for cases like this? If not, what other distros, preferably Arch-based with XFCE, would be good fit for my project?
