    pros, cons and recent comments
    JohnFastman

    PapyrOS and Manjaro are both Arch-based distros with some work done to make them user friendly. Manjaro is the most well developed in that respect and works well as a daily driver. PapyrOS is at an early stage with an aim to look pretty. And the project seems to have stalled.

    JohnFastman

    Depends what you think an alternative is: PapyrOS and Elementary OS aim to look pretty. PapyrOS is based on Arch, which is an advanced distro based on a rolling model (constant, bleeding edge updates). Elementary OS is based on Ubuntu long-term release under the hood.
