I wonder if the #manjaro stuff is how #debian users felt when #Ubuntu first started getting popular? I see it everywhere, and I want to be happy that someone is pushing #arch based stuff forward... But all I can think is... Why not just use arch, and not risk the manjaro guys screwing everything up again?
@OneSubtractOne As a super lame newest newbie to the whole #Linux and #FOSS ecosystem, I'd be absolutely out of it all before I could even get a feel of it if I started with Arch right away. I started with #Ubuntu (simple, popular, ton of help and support) and moved to #Manjaro a few weeks later (love the philosophy behind #Arch , but unable to manage it yet). So, for me personally, Manjaro is a newbie-friendly yet super-powerful introduction to Arch (eventually)
@rosnovsky @OneSubtractOne Been there, done that... I found it comforting using Arch after having Ubuntu and Fedora break at things that should have been simple. In #Arch you at least get really good documentation, which matters most if you want to learn the inner workings. And that's why Arch (and probably Manjaro) are great starting points.
Socializing like it's 1999!
