    just released today:

    Manjaro XFCE and OpenBox edition:

    We are happy to announce the release of Manjaro 0.8.5.
    We worked hard to make this release the best Manjaro experience featuring Openbox 3.5.0 and Xfce 4.10.
    A graphical installer got added and a Manjaro settings manager handling user accounts, keyboard layouts, locales and translation packages is also included.
    Pamac got enhanced and is now translated to several languages.
    A special thanks flies out to Carl Duff for his great beginners guide, which makes it easy to install and start Manjaro Linux for everyone!

    Followed changes are made since Manjaro 0.8.4:

    Graphical installer introduced
    Manjaro Settings Manager introduced
    LXDM/Slim as display manager
    Linux 3.8.5 as our kernel
    SystemD 198
    Xorg 1.14.0
    Proprietary driver support for AMD and Nvidia graphic cards
    Additional multimedia support, applications, and access to the AUR have been pre-installed

    Cool distro, but as it's based on Arch, installing VMware Tools is a PITA. :doubt:

    there's something to be said with Ubuntu and derivatives, for the ease of use.

    i tried distros like openSUSE and Manjaro and while i love both it's not always beginner-friendly.
