      Top positive comment  about 4 years ago

      JohnFastman Manjaro and Antergos are both rolling release, Arch-based Linux distros offering multiple desktop environments. Manjaro, however, is the more polished, more user-friendly and with the better community support. The world is big enough for both, but it's hard to see why Manjaro shouldn't be the first choice between the two.

      Assuming someone uses Antergos because they want an Arch distro with an easy install, that sounds exactly like Manjaro.

      Arch Linux vs Antergos
      pros, cons and recent comments
      It's the closest alternative to Antergos. Some say and I completely agree that Antergos was just an Arch installer. So, why not using pure Arch?
      Positive comment almost 2 years ago

      Unlike Antergos, Arch it's hardly "plug and play" as it requires installing from CLI and a lengthy configuration process; there are however installers like AL Installer, Anarchy Linux o Arch Labs that pretty much fill these requirements

      It has similarities, but pure Arch needs to be installed through command-line or scripts while Antergos has CNCHI installer that was totally graphical. Also, Arch is very manual and not as user-friendly as it tries to be.

      It can be an alternative, but Fedora isn't a rolling release like Arch, but it can be considered a bleeding edge distro. Not as much when compared to Arch, but it's something that worth mentioning.

      RemovedUser Unless you're really into the Arch ecosystem and depend on things like AUR or the rolling release model, Fedora is a great alternative that's both up-to-date and extremely stable.

      Not a bleeding edge and rolling release distribution, it mimics macOS look-and-feel and it's based on Ubuntu, so it uses the LTS philosophy.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      JohnFastman Tails is aimed at security and privacy. Great for whistleblowers, for example. Antergos aims to be a mainstream, user-friendly, Arch-based Linux distribution that bridges the gap between Arch and the average user. The closest to Antergos is Manjaro.

      Not a bleeding edge and rolling release distribution like Antergos, it's part of the Ubuntu flavors, in this case, it uses KDE Plasma which is pretty similar to Windows in the way it looks. KDE Plasma is a rich full-featured desktop environment, if you like to customize each part of the system and want something that is not huge in memory and cpu usage, that's an interesting choice.

      Qubes OS vs Antergos
      pros, cons and recent comments
      JohnFastman Qubes is a Debian-based Linux distro aimed at security, rather than usability. It compartmentalizes your activity into virtual machines which makes your workflow hard for most common tasks and increases system load. Great for whistle-blowers, not for video editors. Antergos is based on Arch and aims at delivering a friendlier Arch-based experience out-of-the box. Manjaro is closest to Antergos.

      pros, cons and recent comments
      Not a bleeding edge and rolling release distribution. Lubuntu is part of the official Ubuntu flavors that uses LXDE (pre-18.04) and LXQt (pos-18.10) as the desktop environment. Lubuntu is aimed for those with a old and dated computer/laptop or with bad specs. Lubuntu is simple, lightweight and fast.
