I looked at the manjaro.org site, and I was quite shocked to read the introduction about what it is:
’ Manjaro Linux is a Linux Distribution based on Arch Linux. It is still under development, but an initial testing release is already available. Our aim is to create a light linux distribution, which is simple, up-to-date, fast and user friendly and which follows the K.I.S.S principle. We are using the Desktop Environment Xfce, which is light but powerfull.’
All caps for emphasis not shouting.
STILL UNDER DEVELOPMENT - sounds like a system that is not ready for use.
AN INITIAL TESTING RELEASE - what have I been using for the past years?
The download page make it sound like a disaster waiting to happen:
‘The LiveCD is out-of-date and updating can cause a breakage of the system! Please wait for the next release!’
Why is the package from 2011?
Again, caps for highlighting the text.
It’s OUT OF DATE and UPDATING THE SYSTEM CAN CAUSE BREAKAGE!
How can I recommend that to anyone?
If all of this intentional, then what’s the message to new people who visit manjaro.org? This is an out of date system that hasn’t been updated for 10 years and good luck breaking your computer. I nearly posted manjaro.org to groups on social media. Glad I didn’t. If this is a marketing thing, it’s a bad one. The home page must be for the current system. Changing URL’s for the main system page is confusing.
