HELP! Manjaro or Ubuntu for desktop use everyday?

So yeah, I’m not sure what to pick.

Peppermint :wink:

I’ve heard of Peppermint, what makes you choose that? :slight_smile:

Reasons:-

It’s lighter than Ubuntu

it has access to all the Ubuntu software (directly via the Ubuntu repos)

all the available help / documentation / websites for Ubuntu are easily translatable to Peppermint

Peppermint doesn’t make software choices for you (it’s kind of a minimal install where YOU choose which apps to install)

and it puts web apps on an equal footing with locally installed apps … see ice /SSB’s
http://peppermintos.com/guide/ice/

it has a great, friendly, and helpful community (in fact I’d say the friendlies community I’ve come across bar non)

but mainly … I’m part of the team that creates it, so it’s a simple choice for me … well you did ask :wink:

Peppermint for me! Both on laptop and desktop.

Why? well, because it is so light as standard, and you can add as much or as little as you want - use the cloud as much or as little as you want, and the desktop environment is incredibly versatile, and can be customised to, I would say, everyone’s tastes.

The support on here is absolutely fantastic too!

Plus it is Linux, and it keeps me away from all of M$ “efforts”

They are both at almost opposite of the spectrum so try both, then make up your mind. :wink:

Good advice there from SeZo … only one person can say which distro will suit you best :wink:
