The team behind Manjaro Linux has just launched a new version of the distribution based on Arch that makes use of the Budgie desktop, offering its users a Linux distro with two main features: simplicity and elegance.
Minimalistic distro that imitates Chrome OS.
The advantage of the Budgie desktop is that it isn't a fork of any other project, despite using parts of GNOME's stack and being developed by Solus. It's a project that has been set out from scratch and integrates perfectly with other environments.
Applications available in Manjaro Budgie
- LibreOffice to create and edit office documents.
- Brasero to record optical discs.
- SMPlayer as a multimedia player.
- Firefox as the default browser.
- The Thunderbird email client.
- Hexchat to be able to access IRC.
- And many more applications.
Furthermore, this distro integrates the Linux 4.1.x kernel in its LTS version and supports AUR. In other words, it comes along with everything you could possibly need in your next Linux distro.
