    Using Manjaro Gnome and xfce, two machines. As of last night thinking about OB Revenge and maybe give Antergos a 6th install try. It just won’t take, tried multiple machines and VM’s. My friend has it on his Mac (complete OS replacement) and it looks great.

    Iam looking for a distro which i could use blender, gimp and openshot as efficient as possible …..are arch based distros good enough or should i go for something like lubuntu or linuxmint ?

    • Jesse says:

      If you’ve got some previous experience using Linux, then Arch Linux is quite a safe bet…. Particularly because using Arch can get a lil tricky… And you should be ready to get fixing when something breaks… All in all, Arch is pretty stable and will let you work just as effectively as its Ubuntu counterparts..

    Currently using Manjaro Xfce on my trusty old ThinkPad Edge, it flies ! While it feels faster, I gets more time out of my battery than on Ubuntu 14. Loving the rolling release model !

    You forgot MATE in your list of Manjaros flavours.

    there is no doubt that the Antergos development team have done a great job with Arch while still extremely user-friendly…..once they have their app store ready for prime time, the operating system will certainly be a force to contend with in the nearer future……hopefully it can go shoulder to shoulder with the popular ubuntu derivatives out there including Linux Mint

    I have been using Antergos Gnome for a few months now and I love it! The Ubuntu Gnome guys do a great job, but the development cycle makes it tough for them. Once you get Antergos setup the way you like it, it just runs and you get the latest updates all the time.
