Pure Arch has too much software installation, I’m afraid.
Manjaro is far more ready-to-go. I had enormous problems trying to connect a printer, which is a snap with Manjaro.
Also, I don’t consider Manjaro to be “bloated.”
So, as long as the Arch Forum, and r/archlinux hate us because we don’t know how, or are unwilling to take the time to easily install an OS, it may as well be Manjaro.
Their forums as just as friendly as the forums here are, and I’m going to keep logging in here, too, because I like you guys!
