    I played with Manjaro for a few weeks and finally got tired of stuff working then not working. Parts of the system were very polished and fast but it seemed "fragile" to me...

    That's the downside of using any bleeding edge system. Things break; more often than people think. On the upside, things that break are usually fixed very quickly.

    Manjaro's "Unstable" is actually Arch's "Stable" so 99% of the time things will be fine with Manjaro Unstable. Going back to Stable and looking at what bluetooth is installed then seeing the newer versions makes me think that there's something that's changed in the bluetooth stuff. System runs fine with Stable though.

    Well, it's been over 2 months that I've been rockin' Manjaro and I'm really lovin' it. All that pacman and AUR goodness without all the fuss and muss. Anyone looking to get into Arch but who doesn't want to "do the work" should give Manjaro a look, you won't be disappointed.

    Next time you install a distro, make the /boot and /root the same partition.
    Then you can make /home on 2nd partition and /swap on third.
    Always manual setup the hard drive.
    It may seem difficult at first, but after a few tries it has stayed the same, while you have been made smarter!

    I've that before but I really keep nothing in my home partition that's not backed up to a couple of external hard drives so it's no big deal to lose my home partition through a reinstall. Besides, I've moved on to Arch via the Evo/Lution AIS installer with a MATE DE so I'm good now.

    yes, the times have changed.
    But nowadays, it's all gui driven and seems to work okay.
    I'm even using a VM for all my Linux installs.
    lol, what a trip!

    Glad to hear you're on Arch now.
