My first impressions after installing Manjaro Linux

I recently switched my media server from Linux Mint to Manjaro (KDE) and after two days here are my first impressions.

  • This Operating System is full of surprises! I love that I can snap my windows to either side of the screen the same way Windows does (Take a hint Apple!).
  • There’s a significant amount of customisation available in the settings, which I’m still running through.
  • The UI is great and easy to customise. I have a semi Mac-like setup running in under 15 mins with no additonal packages needed.
  • My favourite mini feature so far is dragging directories between two windows shows a little pop-up with options to “Move/Copy”. I think this is a really nice touch and something I have not seen in a Desktop OS before. Dolphin seems like a great file manager in general.

That’s all for now.
