Description: "We're happy to announce the 0.8.12 release of Manjaro Linux installation media, including images for the Xfce and KDE 4 desktop environments, and our minimal 'Net' edition. Great progress is being made with our new 0.9 series installation media that uses the Calamares installer, along with our new KDE Plasma 5 installation media, but since neither is quite ready yet we're providing updated 0.8 series installation media that uses our legacy installer, Thus. This release is predominantly a maintenance release and includes very few changes to system defaults relative to the previous 0.8.11 ISO images, with some notable exceptions, such as out-of-the-box support for the exFAT file system and the change to Pacman 4.2."
Keywords: Arch-based Euler KDE Xfce Net exFAT Pacman

Pros: ease of install, fast and stable, rolling-release, gorgeous by default (subjective), everything just works
Cons: feels like daily updates always available.



Since Rolling Release-based, I am currently at Manjaro 15.12 due updates. This distro is a joy to use. I opted for the xfce version, but there are numerous gorgeous community based versions ranging from openbox, fluxbox, jwm, budgie, gnome, kde, I3, enlightenment, etc.

The Openbox, jwm, and fluxbox versions are unrivaled in beauty and settings. Only negative they have versus the xfce, kde, mate, and gnome version is the sound issue for my AMD A8 based ASUS laptop.
