It’s been awhile since I’ve taken Manjaro’s MATE version for a spin and the first thing I noticed is it looks a ton better. The last version I used did not look good. Nothing seemed to match and I had to do a lot of tweaking to make it look decent. Right out of the box this one looked good. It also didn’t have an abundance of software installed like some versions of Manjaro. While I do like this distro it still doesn’t feel as good as LinuxMint’s MATE spin or Ubuntu MATE. If you want MATE with a pacman base it is good though.
