Yes, after 3 years I've decided to uninstall Manjaro xfce and install - Arch Linux LTS xfce!
A huge step for me, as I've always considered myself a user not an expert, even though I do tinker and break things a lot. Oh boy, I've picked the right distro if I want to tinker.
So far, so good. I've installed the Whisker Menu to make me feel more at home in the xfce environment, but I have steered clear of the GUI package managers, relying instead on pacman and yay.
My grandkids have taken over my laptop, so I had to install Windows 10 so that they could play their favourite games and my daughter could access Office 2016. I was running Manjaro on a spare internal HDD drive that I bought a USB case for and I just plug it in whenever I get a chance to get near my laptop. Arch Linux has replaced Manjaro on the spare drive and after a couple of mishaps, finally installed correctly. I had practised a few times on a VM.
I still think that Manjaro is the best Linux distro out there - but now it's time to meet its Daddy.
So here goes - I'm like a kid with a new toy (where's my spanner?).
Wish me luck.
