How is Manjaro?
Have anyone tried Manjaro?

How is it compared to Arch?

I'm very happy with it.
Everything works flawlessly for me.

Is the install process easy? I didn't have time to learn how to install Arch yet.
Are there advantages from Arch to Manjaro? Does Manjaro uses Arch's repos?

Another thing, is it easy to install Steam?

Manjaro is full of nightmare for me.

It would help if you explained why =]

Boot corruption at it's finest. Installation is easy, but I don't want to repair my OS to make it bootable again.
Besides most of its' stuff is quite ... I prefer self made already, so the kind of manjaro is way to sluggish for me.

I might give it a spin this weekend.

I suspect it still suffers from what I dislike about Arch though; rolling release. My previous experiences with Arch (as a server OS) weren't pleasant because of it. Updates can totally bork your system (my last experience was when they decided to move a bunch of stuff including system libraries to /usr for no good reason. Which didn't go well) - especially if you neglect to keep on top of it and try updating after a three month lag.
I don't see the point behind rolling releases. It means you never have to do a reinstallation in order to update to a newer system, but when it goes wrong you end up having to work out how to fix it...or do a reinstall. :P

Who would use a rolling release distro as an OS server? I can't express how I'm laughing LOOOL
Cybertao Sep 18, 2013 @ 11:59pm 
You're right, I wouldn't use a rolling release for a server. For the same reason I wouldn't use one as a desktop. Or at all.

I'd love to hear your reasoning as to why Arch is otherwise an inappropriate choice for a headless server, that should be hilarious coming from someone who can't even install it. LOOOL

Where did I say I can't? You should stop putting lies onto other people's mouths. I said I didn't have the time to learn, which for a novice can take hours to.

And you are so miss-informative and confuse that you don't see a point in using a RR Server but still you did hehehe. I mean, even if that's what you did, because I get this feeling that you used regular Arch as a server and had to look up if it's possible to do so after you claimed to use it as a Server OS. Btw feel free to record yourself installing Arch and making it into a Server, I'm sure we would love to see your genius brain at work ;-)

'Regular Arch'?

There's only one flavour you clueless bell-end.

I would assume you knew that "regular Arch" is different from "the server setup". Guess I was wrong, "Mr. Genius".
Cybertao Sep 19, 2013 @ 1:09am 
Enlighten me with your wisdom then.

What happened Mr. Genius? Lost all your knowledge?

Obviously. Share yours since you are so full of it...you're clearly full of something.
