I am self employed professional, love to explore into the opensource [ever since i got a cd with redhat 5.2 sometime in late 1998/99 i suppose, non gui] i remember the days i never knew anyting in *nix and i had to catch up a mag with basic commands and ways of partitioning disk using the linux command from the live cd.
having said that, i got a taste of manjaro openbox [0.83? i dont remember] that was for a short while. prior to that i had sort of "graduated" to understand the simple and lucid explanation in arch wiki and start with Arch... well rolling release was the main cause as i had broken packages during many of the ubuntu upgrades !
arch system fascinated me and had been using it for almost a year or so when i broke it beyond recovery [all done to enlighten myself in linux and its awesome capabilities]
after i broke arch, i was hunting for an arch like distro which will give me the best with least effort [let me confess, i am also a lazy guy who never re-works on the ativities already executed !]
after a short stint of manjaro openbox, i opted for the elementary [spare time became scarce and i wanted a linux distro which just worked with all its stability without having necessity of a bleeding edge distro]
elementary still runs on the desktop and its manjaro on my laptop booting happily along side windows that came pre-installed and i didnt wish to remove it (family is more in need of windows and it will be some time till i make them "TUX smart"
Well, coming to the thread objective...
i use MANJARO.... coz...
1) all packages / multimedia codecs etc just works after the install without having the need to configure
2) its not a resource hog [another reason for me deviating from the 'buntus and its derivatives]
3)its (almost) bleeding edge may be next to just Arch.
4) its package management system [pacman is just superb]
5) eventhough i do not have any basic knowledge in image manipulation or digital art, it being my passion and a hobby, i use gimp a lot. just started using inkscape and learning the nitty gritty stuff on my own.
6) wine helps me do almost all of my office related works so there is no need to boot into windows
7) within my capacity, i ve been able to induce a few "windowers" to venture into this simple yet fully loaded and light on resource distro
8) i am sure Manjaro will be on my system for the years to come !
9) having hopped thru all the desktops [gnome2, gnome-shell, kde, gnome-classic, mate, cinnamon, openbox, blackbox, fluxbox, lumina (in pcbsd), xfce...gnome2 was my fav with compiz, which i still use in openindiana], now i am fascinated wth i3 [also using jw and budgie]
for the homepage addition, i think a one liner should work ? so here i can sum up...
"MANJARO, Its an easy to use "Arch"itechture that will be admired by both; the first timers as well as professionals / programmers..... it just works !"
