At least say thanks from time to time to those people who bring Manjaro to you and those people who work hard to keep the forum a happy place.
yes thanks very much  ;D

Guys and Gals, stop worrying about Distrowatch "charts". Manjaro is a happy, healthy, thriving community. Lots of people are using it and loving it. As has been mentioned, say "thankyou" sometimes and, if you can, make a donation towards running the servers. If they stop running then your world will go dark. Support the cause! I will admit that I haven't donated yet because times have been tough, but they are a bit better now and I will be making a donation tomorrow because Manjaro makes my life a bit better. C'mon!  8)

It's a community, not a (Microsoft/Apple/Samsung/Ford/Toyota/IBM/McDonalds/Starbucks/Shell/anything else?) corporation. Lets keep it that way.

Using Manjaro as my main OS since dumping Windows 7 after the last BSOD...  >:(

I freaking love this OS and should anyone stop developing for it, I fear I would have to go to the dark side and buy myself a mac  :(
I love this community and I love the rolling release structure of updates.  I love how fast it is. I love how stable it is. I can go on.
Thank you for creating an awesome OS and a brilliant one at that.

I want to thank the Development Team for all the hours of hard work you put in.  I know it is a personal sacrifice for many of you.  Keep up the excellent work.   :D

Thanks to Phil for the statement, helps put our minds at ease.

Thank you so much to all the guys who make Manjaro what it is, past and present,  I think I'd still be using Windoze if it wasn't for you all so you really are special to me.

I will stay with Manjaro until the end, weather it be my end, or Manjaro's end, I hope either are a long long way away  ;)

Cheers,
Darso.

I had to clean up some posts here. Manjaro will still exist and we have now some issues to deal with. We are sorry to all those projects trusting on us. This issue has grown now and not only our forum is now affect. The team is in direct contact with those forums and projects. It even went so far that people using our pictures and impersonate us. Not only me but other team members as well. Friends, we will pass this issue together and it also shows how strong we are, truly. I thank you all having you in my team and doing Manjaro together.

A sure sign that Manjaro is becoming a little too successful for certain others to stomach and this isn't the first time I've seen this. Staying on top of this as well as being transparent about it shows a lot of caring and professionalism on the part of you, the development team and the supporters. A big thumbs up.

You might actually be right in your analysis. These arguments within a niche called desktop linux are nothing short of ridicilous

Heh, like the current conversations about certain other distros eventually switching to systemd? :P

That particular one is getting rather entertaining.

After reading through this entire thread, I decided I would post my own 2 cents worth. :D

I have over the past 3 years tried a number of Linux distros.
And I have been annoyed off and on by pretty much all of them.  :o
BUT, I have found that during these past couple of months that I have been using Manjaro,
that I actually do enjoy using it. A lot.  8)
One of the KEY reasons is this forum. Not only do the forum members know what they are talking
about, but they are understanding and quite helpful, especially top a "newb" in the Arch-based world as I am.
I am finding that a rolling release system is much more to my liking, primarily because of the fact it is
in a relatively constant state of update. And with Manjaro it also adds to this mix a very decent amount of stability as well.
Installing from the rpos is relatively quick and painless. Installing from AUR, well that has gotten about a 80 to 85 percent rating from me as on several attempted installs the build either out and out failed, or it choked. But, the ones that went well, I found it quite "entertaining" to sit and watch the build process progressing (and having VERY serious nightmares what it would be like to have to all that "manually").  :o :o :o

Well, anyway, I am definitely pleased with Manjaro so far.
So, to the Dev Team and all those involved...

KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK !!!!!
