For a while now I have enjoyed the Linux OS. I have mostly used Ubuntu over the past decade. Ubuntu made the desktop PC easy enough to setup. Ubuntu was Debian under the hood and I like Debian. In fact, I use Debian for the majority of my personal servers; you got to sprinkle flavor here and there.
Well I heard the other day that Microsoft bought Ubuntu. The I took the time to read about the announcement of Microsoft buying Canonical; the company that distributes Ubuntu. Now, I use Microsoft products. I have an Win10 box I play games on, edit videos, and do CAD work on. However, I have never liked the idea of Microsoft getting into Linux. It has always been the ‘canary in the coal mine’ for me. I digress.
I am moving on to manjaro. It is based off of Arch Linux. I can say that I tried out Arch a few times, but never really stuck with it; I don’t know much about it. Debian wouldn’t boot on a laptop and manjaro installed and booted with no issue at all; even the wifi drivers worked – something Debian doesn’t play well with.
So far, manjaro has the software that I wanted to install: discord, element.io, and a coding IDE. I don’t think that I will use it for much more than that. After all, I sit at the Win10 PC most of the time.
If you are looking for an Ubuntu replacement, check out manjaro. I don’t think that you will be disappointed.
