Can I use Manjaro instead of Ubuntu (Linux noob here)


#1

HI :slight_smile:
Can I use Manjaro instead of Ubuntu? I have zero Linux experience but would like to learn Linux in general, and many sources point to Manjaro as best start.
Are The Odin Project materials universal linux-wise or some parts are specific to Ubuntu?

Any Linux distro should be fine :slight_smile:

Manjaro is less beginner-friendly than Ubuntu as its user base is much smaller. Thereโ€™s also quite a few editions of Manjaro (for different desktop environments like GNOME, XFCE etc.) You might need to spend more time hunting for answers.

If you have zero Linux experience, I would highly recommend Ubuntu or something based on Ubuntu like Elementary
