Manjaro_By_MM will be Collaborating with CupofLinux.
« on: May 30, 2014, 04:07:14 PM »
Hello guys.
As you know I have my own Manjaro Respin.  ( Manjaro_By_MM )  After speaking with other members of the community and Spatry, We have decided that merging our efforts to create one consolidated Distribution is the best way to serve you guys.  So we will be collaborating on the Manjaro Cupoflinux edition  and truly making it a community built Distribution.  We feel that this collaboration will better serve you the community, And hopefully help push Manjaro  a little more into the mainstream.  Spatry is still the head developer of  the Cupoflinux Edition.  So he will have the final say. So for those of you that are big fans of This Distro, Don't worry. it's still the same project it was before.  Collaborating our efforts can only improve the project. The goal is to make the best software offering possible for our friends here in the Cupoflinux community.  If you have any feature request for this project Please see this thread You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. If you would like to work with us on this project and contribute to the cupoflinux distribution  we welcome that.  Please sign up to be a member of the team You are not allowed to view links.

Great to hear, I always like seeing projects come together like this.  I feel like Manjaro just needs a bit of tweaking to be truly beginner friendly, and your distros have come the closest IMHO.

Great news.
(not even counting the fact that I love stock Manjaro), both of you have made such great tweaks (many of which I already did, to stock Manjaro... using either of your distros was like having stock Manjaro + 1/2 the tweaks I would do, "out of the box") to Manjaro and the fact that two of the nicest respin distros are merging is great to hear. 
To make a perfect Manjaro the way I like it (honestly, I would "take this and that tweak from MM's respin and then that tweak over there" from Spatry's ) .. I also have to say some issues I had (not sure why this is) with some of .89 releases lately do not appear in ".8.10 RC" (just decided to give it a try) .. .so I think the .8.10 "final" (if you can call it that) may be out soon...
The hardest part of dealing with both respins until now was "I only have one extra partition... and have to choose between the two"

I am working on the 0810RC to throw at beta testers right now... Matthew and I talked all day. We both decided on what packages to include and now I am assembling a nice OS for you guys to try...

I could if I didn't think Ubuntu was such a piece of crap.  :/   But we'll see.  the two spins I have now are LTS releases. Xubuntu supported for 3years.  Ubuntu for 5 years.

I think this also a very good idea.  I imagine it's hard to maintain your own distro all by yourself.  I have a lot of respect for both you and spatry.  good luck.
