Yes, it does.
(Personally I've been using Arch this past month or two, but I've stuck with my old favourite MATE).
Arch will be my next distro once I've got enough experience in majaro.
when you want to try Arch I suggest you try the Feliz Installer.
https://sourceforge.net/projects/feliz/
https://github.com/angeltoast/feliz2

It works pretty slick, even with wifi. you get a Basic install with choice of desktop, editors, and a few others.
I have used it several times. The only problem I had was trying to prepare partitions within the installer. I strongly suggest preparing all of your target partitions before you boot with the installer.

Installed Kubuntu 18.04 today and have to say it is pretty sweet.

The best-looking KDE distro I've seen is Namib Linux. The installer is a bit rough on the English language as it doesn't seem any of the devs speak it natively, but it really is very slick. That's best-looking, not 'the best' distro.

I'll be switching to Kubuntu as soon as the Mint support runs out.
It's the distro I started with many years ago. So no worries for me.
If I find it lacking with features I enjoyed with Mint KDE,
I can always use Xfce and be able to run my applications with no issues.
I also use Cinnamon, but the screen casting seems to have issues like flickering issue in the result.
