My favourite distro is Manjaro, because it has great hardware support and autoconfiguration, and is stable. But they will only focus on tablets and phones, so I started looking for a desktop distro that I can install for my friends who has no experience in Arch.
I gave a try for Antergos (only in live mode), but the result was very poor.
I think Antergos is not for everyone. It is for who
- has a fast computer that is enough strong to run KDE or GNOME, because there is tearing with XFWM and others
- has a friend who can tinker the system, when it breaks (and after installing, to make it able to start), and download the missing hardware drivers
- has experience in Arch, but too lazy to use the command line.
I’m not too lazy to use the command line, but I am too lazy to tinker all my friends’ system, when it breaks, therefore I am looking for a distro, that is stable, rolling release, supports lighter DEs than KDE and GNOME, has easy to use package manager (AUR support with GUI), has great hardware support with autoconfiguration, and based on Arch.
I have Broadcom wireless, and Radeon video. I know these haven’t got good Linux support, but Manjaro had configured them well (and there are a lot of devices that haven’t got good Linux support). In Antergos there is no wireless. I couldn’t test the video (tearing, performance), because I booted the minimal ISO, and not installed, because I wouldn’t want to destroy my Arch (currently I don’t have enough space to make backup).
i think you should take a look at Manjaro Hardware Detector. It can tune the video card automatically for better performance.
Manjaro has mailing lists. Does Antergos have any?
I couldn’t find the feedback page of Antergos. Where is it?
I think there will be lot people who are looking for another distro instead of Manjaro.
