    Manjaro's time has passed and its security model is no security.

    Antergos yo!

    It's pamac, not pacmac.

    I wish Arch could lose it's elitist glance so more people would contribute to reach a wider audience. I have seen forum signatures stating that Arch is not for everyone. That's just detrimental.

    Why should every distro have widespread popularity as it's main goal? That seems idiotic. Arch caters to a specific target group. What's wrong with that?
    That's about the same as saying "I wish Lamborghini would make cars every Grandma could enjoy." It simply would not be a Lamborghini anymore.

    Can you elaborate upon this?

    Arch is incredibly difficult to install, relatively recently it was made even harder. There used to be a semi-automated thing that did it with menus. Now, you're dumped at a command line and expected to get on with it. Only Gentoo and LFS surpass the difficulty level of installing Arch. I think 'Arch is not for everyone' is more realistic than detrimental.

    Default Manjaro rocks

    Thanks Michael
    Manjaro -I switched from Xubuntu and I am very happy with it - is a really KISS distro, i think is even easier than Ubuntu for a newbe

    XFCE is very similar to XP - you can also use Xubuntu

    Pamac or Octopi GUIs allow you to install and upgrade every package from AUR or main repos
    They are much faster than the ubuntu software center, also the packages catalog is much bigger
    AUR is like having every PPA together without having to install each and everyone and without having errors updating - if any PPA have one -
    Also AUR and main repos update / upgrade in their own way - as in every arch based distro -

    Actually there are 2 other Arch fo rhuman beings distros, one is Kaos but it has almost only one developer, Anke and is focused in a nice KDE the other one is Antergos, pure arch, but with a great multi DE graphical installer

    The Manjaro packages as mhwd for installing kernels and drivers and its GUI are great add ons for arch

    I think it was voted first when you asked for benchmarks, and - with different kernel - it did great the last time you benchmarked it.
    Please add it toyour benchmark pool with latest kernels when you benchmark Ubuntu kernels too.

    Manjaro KDE is my main distro since November. It is super fast and easier to deploy than Arch. Yes it's quite harder than let's say Ubuntu but it is not 1.0 yet, RTFM jelly-brains. AUR rocks.

    @Michael:
    If you were going to benchmark/test it do remember that although the 3.10 LTS series kernel is provided out-of-the-box, many other kernel series' are available from the official repo, including the latest 3.13 and 3.12 kernels.

    They can easily be installed with:

    sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux312
    sudo mhwd-kernel -i linux313

    Yes, lets debate which of these 2 distros is better for usage on mission critical systems.

    Then maybe we can discuss if drinking red paint or blue paint is better for your health.
