Those who have been following Distrowatch, may have noticed that Manjaro has made a fast rise in the distro rankings. It's currently, at the time of writing of this post, the number 4 Linux distribution in the world.

Also Google trends is showing a fast increase of Manjaro:



Some people have already said it and I too feel this is going to happen. I think Manjaro will become the next Ubuntu or Mint in terms of users.

I also think that the current Manjaro community is very similar to the Ubuntu community in the early days.

I see great potential for Manjaro.

Not sure how I feel about that.
I really really love Manjaro but Ubuntu kinda makes me nervous in some ways.
They seem to be more company/corporate minded.
Ubunbtu isn't maintained by a group of dedicated people;it's maintained by a company.
That was one of the reasons I left Windows.

I believe it's safe to say that Manjaro devs are pretty dedicated  8)

You can't feel the love till it hurts a little. Go rolling, go bleeding-edge !

I don't believe that. Of course, as in all types of media, often there is mathematical error or misinterpretation of results. But to generalize like you did, I believe is not correct.

Indeed, I agree about the nervousness. However, for those who are nervous about weening off of ms, perhaps they can draw comfort from the very thing that makes some of us nervous. ???
Ubuntu seems to have a healthy user base, so they are satisfying a need for sure.


Best regards.
Be kind to everyone, because everyone is fighting some sort of battle.

I'm happy I discovered Manjaro - but it wasn't because it's sometimes thought of as Arch with an Installer. I've installed Arch many times in VirtualBox and on the rails, and in the process discovered the delightful pacman. I was not able to get as good a look and feel  with Arch as I get with Manjaro's Xfce and LXQt desktops. So I've settled on Manjaro Xfce for my netbook. And I get pacman as well. :)
I doubt I will abandon Debian though. Linux Mint Cinnamon is polished and stable and easy to use for anyone who also uses Windows - like my wife and the grandkids. If my wife wants her email on holiday though she'll need to learn a bit about Manjaro.  ;)
