Recently i had [some frustrations] with Manjaro Linux. Most notable for me were:
- not so good compatibility with Windows 7 [dual booting is working, but after Manjaro updated, Windows 7 stopped working for some reason].
- some problems with Nvidia drivers
- strange power management system
- not properly working keyboard backlit on Dell laptop
So, i went to [DistroWatch]
and instantly noticed [EndeavourOS]
, which was already among popular distributions and rapidly climbing to the top.
Moreover it was completely unknown to me. I’ve decided to try it out and have no regrets about it.
EndeavourOS was founded in 2019 in Netherlands, has vibrant community and nice vector of development.
It is an [Arch Linux] based distro. I was interested in butterfs file system and TimeShift backup software.
What is more important it looks like it is more stable than Manjaro and contains no bloat software in default installation.
Clean distros without any bloat is a rare thing in 2023.
So, i suggest to try out [EndeavourOS] !
