I mean, the fuq would a bloddy n00b do on Manjaro? It’s a recipe for desaster! And a bonafide über geek like Luke Smith has maybe forgotten how confusing even a Ubuntu or Mint system is when you have just freshly arrived from Windows. Otoh I can remember even that stupid Orca woman once said “Why not Manjaro for beginners? The desktops are the same on Mint as on Manjaro, so it’s 99% compatible anyway. In fact why waste time on Mint when you can start already in a higher league?”
But don’t listen to Orca. Here comes true expertise directly out of geekdom:
Didn’t understand everything? Me neither. Doesn’t matter. For our needs as Linux housewives, we only need to know a couple simple facts:
- Installation is as simple as a Mint or Ubuntu install.
- Same as with Mint – the shit just werkz!
- Don’t listen to Luke, don’t use Xfce. Manjaro is available with your favourite Cinnamon desktop as well. We housewives need some luxury and good looks! There’s also as Mate version for when you wanna be as cool and oldstyle sexy as Orcsibaby. Super duper.
- Asking yourself what all the excitement about snaps and flatpacks is about? Don’t! We don’t need that confusing shit in Arch and Manjaro since we have the AUR to install every FOSS program under the sun from.
- Talking about Arch, of which Manjaro is a bastardized fork, why don’t we skip it and go directly with Endeavour? Ya, that’s Orca’s recommendation – for n00bs!!! If you know just a little bit about computerz and are curious and want the best, just go for it! So take all the benefits Luke told you about and get them even a tiny bit better and with less interference by any devs and enjoy a simple af super Linux!
- As Luke said Manjaro/Endeavour really saves you from a lot of headaches. Everything is clear and, yes, simple. Not necessarily easy for when you’re totally clueless but simple to operate for no-idiots. Much more simple than all Ubuntu and Debian forks and daughter distros.
