How can you make a statement like that Mauser?

All you had to do was search the web for "manjaro forum rules":

https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php?title=Forum_Rules

Manjaro has had forum rules for years now, since its early days. I know, as I was involved in making them.
I could explain why I stated that, but it would violate the 'distro bashing rule" on this forum. While the distro bashing rule is great in one way it's bad in the other way because it allows false positive statements to be posed and it doesn't allow any factual negative reply because it would be considered distro bashing. I will follow the forum rules.

Thank you for that Mauser. Of course you are free to discuss things among yourselves via PMs if you please. As long as such things are kept off the forums themselves.

I think they dealt with it well. MX is not rolling but it's kind of semi rolling depending on what you mean by semi rolling.
Yep, correct, I think Manjaro and MX have very different "markets".

I agree @Adrian. I, also, agree with @handy's comment(s). The two forums are quite different in terms of 'tone'. I think a lot of it has to do with the pace of change in each distro (arch's rapid change can be a bit frantic especially when combine with the incredible number of DE's manjaro has under one roof).

It is also due to age IMO.

Manjaro markets itself as being 'dynamic' and 'cool' whereas MX markets itself predominantly for its stability and as a result both are more likely to appeal to different age groups.

I'm glad you said that... I could not agree more heartily. :bagoverhead:

Good point!

In my case,however, even though I recently, mostly have been using MX, and I really like it very much, I have to say I like Manjaro, equally as much but differently. I guess it's because of me having a bit of bipolar personality :happy:

I don't know about bipolar personality... :footinmouth:

Both distros are to my mind excellent. But I have to say, I personally appreciate & prefer the stability and flexibility of the MX distro and community. But then, I'm just an old cranky guy. :eek:

Back in the day, when I was a lot younger, I started using MEPIS (not their first release (2003 IIRC), but a beta release soon afterwards sometime in 2004).
MEPIS, then, was new and extremely dynamic (it was even based on Debian Testing in its early days for a while) and as a result it attracted a younger crowd (or so we thought we were - some are still here - you know who you are LOL) and well as seasoned linux users (some are still here - you also know who you are).
As MEPIS developed. it became more focussed on stability and consistency (Debian stable), while other lesser distros back then (Ubuntu) focussed on doing something 'new' and that appealed to the younger generation. MEPIS seemed to be less dynamic, so the cool kids moved on to Arch, kanotix then sidux (me).

However, and this is why I'm proud to say that antiX's roots are with MEPIS, MEPIS has always been a flexible distro (under the hood) with a great community. MX has followed in the same footsteps. Under the hood, MX shares (along with antiX) the same flexibility of which manyroads' MX minimum spin is an example.

I think basing MEPIS on testing was more of an experimentation and necessity (Debian was taking looooooong time to release before Ubuntu started to kick their collective butt) and the move to stable was due to two factor, testing breaking things from time to time and Debian getting with the program and starting to release a bit more reliably. So it was not a change of focus but a result of necessity/environment. (but hey that's just my opinion man)
