Show Discussion - September 28, 2019

Thanks to @Schyken for writing this post:

Heyo everyone! Last night’s BDLL wrapped up our two week experience with the MX Linux 19 Beta! (It’s amazing, by the way!) There was also some wild talk about testing, especially because there’s a lot of weird Ubuntu things going on right now! Let us know about some podcasts you listen to for next week’s discussion!

You can watch back the stream here

There will also be an audio version of the stream

This week’s distro challenge is Manjaro, an Arch-based distro that claims to be a “professionally made Linux based operating system that is a suitable replacement for Windows or MacOS”. It is available with three officially supported versions, XFCE, KDE, and GNOME. There are also a number of unofficial/community editions which are available. You are highly encouraged to use the torrent method of downloading if possible to reduce strain on the servers as well as improve the download experience for other users!
