Manjaro comes with more firmware (broadcom wireless for example) and uses its own repos that are NOT as up to date as regular Arch. Bridge brings less of its own polish to the table but hews closer to its parent. I settled on keeping Manjaro around for a bit, and I'll maybe experiment with changing to an Arch mirror.
I like that we're starting to see more Arch based distros. It really is a fine system that could be much more prevalent if somone could tame the install hurdles and come up with a decent and reliable gui for pacman. Perhaps in time one of these two distros (my money's on Manjaro) can be to Arch what Ubuntu is/was to Debian.
update: Ok, setting the mirrors to Arch and editing pacman.conf to Arch defaults breaks the system (boots to cli after replacing all packages with Arch versions). Probably fixable, but the point is, Manjaro is its own distro - not an easy way to install Arch proper. Bridge is more appropriate for that purpose.
