Short Bytes: The long-anticipated Manjaro Linux 16.06 ‘Daniella’ is now available for download. This release has arrived with the latest Linux kernel 4.4 (and 10 other kernel options) and other new features. The flagship Xfce edition of community driven Manjaro Linux comes with Xfce 4.12, bringing more polished desktop experience.
Before diving into the details of Manjaro Linux 16.06, I would like to remind you that it’s an attractive and easy-to-use Linux operating system. While Windows 10 is a great operating system for desktop users, if you want to move to Linux due to privacy issues, Manjaro is an excellent choice.
Manjaro Linux is a rolling Linux distribution, which means that it’s continuously updated and all the changes are pushed as an update regularly.
It’s based on Arch Linux and maintains its own repos. Manjaro aims to maintain the Arch base and its swiftness, combining the user-friendliness.
Manjaro team has released three versions of Manjaro Linux 16.06 — Xfce, KDE, and Net. The other flavors like Cinnamon, GNOME, LXDE, MATE etc. will be released soon as Community Editions.
