Hi guys, noticed there a linux forum out here. So want to share my Manjaro boot setup here and please feel free to ask or any sifu can give more suggestions

Hardware :
CPU : Ryzen 2700x
MOBO : STRIX X470-F GAMING
GPU : Asus Rog Strix RTX 2070
WIFI : TP-LINK AC1300 archer T4U v3
HDD : 1TB HDD, Samsung evo 850 250gb (win), samsung evo 860 500gb (manjaro)
PSU : Evga super nova 850

Only difficulties facing during KDE 18.1 installation was my wireless dongle cant detect any open wireless IDD.

In the end found solution through the manjaro community forum after struggling for few hours:
1) use pamac install AUR package https://aur.archlinux.org/packages/rtl8822bu
or
2) compile and install the firmware files https://github.com/EntropicEffect/rtl8822bu

For new new users who want try try out Manjaro please note:
* make sure update and use correct linux kernel header, example 419 LTS, 512.
* Kernel version associated with your hardware or device driver compatibility and availability

1) You need time, patient and passion.
-> Find solution via community forum
-> Trial and error
-> Read and dive into details of installation guide/manuals

2) Basic linux files and folder structure & terminal command (like me biggrin.gif )
-> sudo, chmod stuff out here
-> log, systemctl
-> folder structure and environment variable

3) Software package may not up to latest version at AUR when comparing with other platforms (win, osx)
-> Write own PKGBUILD and target to latest source dependencies, recommend if you know how to do and what to do
-> Ask somewhere(forum, github, reddit) is anyone kind to help, higher risk because you have to make sure all dependencies source safe
-> Wait for new package update release via AUR, but still recommend to review the PKGBUILD since is maintain by community


imo, Manjaro is really new user friendly for people who want to try linux distro (based on Arch linux), lot of customization can play around, polished Distro, simple and smooth to use due to well built system, kernal and hardware setting.

Manjaro use arch linux which is not the most user-friendly to install. i would suggest ubuntu for the work out of the box experience.
But if you have the time and will to learn linux, any modern linux distro will work.

Have to agree that Ubuntu more user friendly in many aspect , especially more recognise debian package via official source.
May be i rephrase to not beginner friendly, but still use friendly

For people like me who is linux noob and want easy installation of OS, i say Manjaro is the one to choose.

Everthing is ready after u install it. If u using windows, u still need to install drivers, but in Manjaro, mostly it detect for u and auto install them. Super convenient.

I need to address that Ubuntu is way more user-friendly than any Arch-based distro.
I would use Linux Mint any day over any Arch Linux based system, not because Arch is bad; Arch is good for seasoned Linux users.
But Ubuntu is more user-friendly.
