I'm from the UK and have used linux since about 2000, and used it solely from about 2006. Now, I bet you're all thinking I'm some command line geek with all that experience... WRONG! Unfortunately since 2007 I have been an Ubuntu user, enough said right. Last year I changed to Mint because I didn't like the path Canonical are following and tried a couple of others too such as Debian, SolydX, Linuxlite etc.
The problem was none of them excited me. I remembered when I first installed Mandrake 6 how excited I was, I felt I was on the cutting edge and learning something new something few others did. Well, to cut a long story short, lately I've felt like Ubuntu et al have been squeezing the life out of my enthusiasm and have given me nothing in return.
Then I saw Spatry talk about Manjaro so I googled it, liked what I saw and now I've made the switch. I feel excited again about linux. I think Manjaro have struck the right balance between giving us a fully featured out-of-the-box experience while, being based on Arch, has plenty of learning potential.
It's great to be part of the forum.
