New Distro Manjaro Linux Based on Arch

There’s a new distro in town and it is not based on Ubuntu. In fact, almost the opposite – it’s based on and completely compatible with Arch Linux. Well, maybe not opposite because they aim to make Arch easy to install and use. The main version features Xfce 4.10, but they also offer GNOME and KDE DVDs. Best of all, it’s an install live CD/DVD.
The release announcement said:
Manjaro features XFCE 4.10, Kernel 3.4.9, Xorg 7.6 with Xorg-Server 1.12.3 and gcc 4.7.1. Other editions will follow shortly.
Manjaro Linux targets beginners and advanced users at the same time. We provide UI-tools and scripts to make your life much more easier.
