Despite the proven fact that Manjaro really makes Arch as easy as humanly possible and after a while on Manjaro you can upgrade yourself to EOS, no, don’t try non of them as your first gateway drug into serious Linux addiction.

Of course you can operate Mint in a painting-by-numbers fashion, but once you’re in the Arch-ish world this won’t werk for you anymore. You don’t need to be a geek, not even a nerd but a robust knowledge of your toolset is needed indeed. True, in day to day operation Manjaro isn’t much different from Mint (if you’re using the same desktop environment) but under the hood there are important differences.
