    OK, running it in Vbox. Very nice. Huge amount of applications - one hardly needs more.
    Compiz won't play nicely with VBox. Flash and my videos all play out of the box. Apple trailers not out of the box (easy to remedy).
    Here some screenshots .. (Taken with this command:- VBoxManage controlvm Manjaro screenshotpng ~/man1.png Mrk. has a tutorial on this here)

    Yes, I'm eagerly watching for the 1.0 version.
    Tried 0.8.0 and was impressed too, but it needs more work and the cli-installer is a PITA.

    If you take the non assisted it may be a bit 'long-winded' but it's do-able.
    At least no rumble in the jungle with the pacman. :)

    I have installed manjaro in an intel-atom laptop(processor 1.6 gb and 1 gb of ram). It runs very fine, before it had installed Fedora and it was a little slow.
    :D
