Following on from the last video where I checked out the KDE version of Manjaro 20.1 we now have the GNOME version. The ISO for the GNOME version is ever so slightly smaller than the KDE version coming in at around 2.7GB. Installation took around 1 minute and 45 seconds using the Calamares installer. While I prefer the KDE version for my own personal use I really appreciate the work that has gone into making the GNOME desktop more user friendly out of the box. I’m a big fan of the layout switcher and in particular the Unity layout!
