Alvin here, please call me Alf. I was/am an Ubuntu/Mint user for many years & would like 2 explore different distros. Moving to Manjaro is quite a paradigm shift, but I can already see some advantage in it over Ubuntu, certainly lots over windows & mac! The way i look at it, there are ways to give the user more power in Linux, in general, but 1 has 2 figure out how to get there. I'm just figuring out now! 1 has to approach Linux with the mindset of Kano Jigoro, founder of judo who was always learning till the day he died.
