I like Manjaro a lot and think that as an Arch-based distro it has much potential, but it still needs a bit more polish before I'd consider using it as my primary distro. So far, Mint Cinnamon or Xfce is what I always go back to.

Certainly, I am surprised to see that no more Manjaro KDE ?? They say he became Community, but has not yet exited the new image .iso Manjaro KDE ?? A shame, as the 0.8.2 and 0.8.3 worked really well.-

And all of that is far more than can be said of Sabayon. Good grief. What an awful mess that is.

This is definitely not sportsmanship. They could have changed the name or if they want to call it MDM then it should be the Mint Desktop Manager.
I will no more use this distro and will never recommend it to someone. That's not the way things work !
If I want an Arch Distro, I will use Arch
Another change will be the new html-based display manager using webkit for displaying the login screen. With a graphical settings tool plus theme emulator you can costumize the display manager easily to your liking. From auto-login, remote-login to userlist editing – all options can be done by a click of your mouse.

It seems you did understand it because you offered a solution.At this rate, I doubt if it'll take Manjaro's developers years before it's a "good distro."

The first thing I tried, Updater, just gives me dumb looks and it is a pita to understand sorting it out. Will keep trying though as it looks to have promise.
