    • There was a time Ubuntu was the go-to Linux. I hope to show you it's not. Ubuntu is based on Debian and many better Linuxes based on it and Ubuntu derivaties exist. Confused? I would be too. It all depends on your needs. Try Manjaro, Debian, OpenSuse or Fedora. Ubuntu is easy to use, but it will take advantage of you too... JohnFastmanMar 2017 Disagree   Agree

    • Debian is open source, rock-solid and popular, particularly for servers, though desktops too. It uses the .deb package system; Manjaro doesn't. Manjaro is Arch-based. But Manjaro also works out-of-the-box in 95% of cases for me. Setting up Debian has always been a pain in the behind. But maybe that's just me. But try it. Might work for you.

    • Linux Mint is meant for Linux beginners. But it screws up royally. It borrows its foundations from the privacy-violating Ubuntu, and it was hacked in 2016: hackers created jeaopardized versions on its site. Mint? No. Try Manjaro. Or Debian. Or OpenSuse. Or Fedora. Mint has nothing left. It's a cartoon of a cartoon. JohnFastmanMar 2017 Disagree   Agree

    • Sure, Fedora could replace Manjaro. You'd have to switch to an .rpm software package system and accept a smaller software repository than AUR. On the plus side, that software will be better vetted for security. Fedora's default desktop is Gnome 3, so chances are you'll want to install something different once it's up.

    • If you want to replace Manjaro, macOS is unlikely to be the answer. macOS works best on Apple's hardware - Linux can be a challenge to run on that. MacOS is also proprietary, closed source and far less customizable. Good Manjaro alternatives might be Antergos (Arch-based), Fedora, OpenSuse, ElementaryOS or even Qubes, depending on your needs.

Negative Comment by TimPl
about Manjaro Linux Sep 2016

I love pacman and want to love simple installation for Arch Linux. I also wan to love Manjaro, but cant because it is unstable and has critical bugs even with hardware like stucked LAN. I tried many Linux distros on the same hardware but only Manjaro working so bad. I doubt that developers of this distro are professionals.
