Hey,
I have used Manjaro for the past year or so. It's great for everyday tasks. But I would recommend an Ubuntu based system for new comers. It's stable and you can solve any issues easily using the forums.

I started out with Manjaro. I think it's still okay for beginners

Arch Linux is good solution for some experienced Linux users which want to create their own environment by their ideas and know everything about their system.
If you want to have Arch, you need be prepared for very long instalation process and configuration every possible things. But after it you will have know everything possible about your operating system and how is configured..

That's really not true lol, I can get an Arch install set up and running with GUI and my own dotfiles within an hour

Yes and I can install and setup my Linux Mint within 10 minutes..
And how long time it spent when you was install and setup it firstly?
And how long time did you was creating your dotfiles?
I think that beginner doesn't have any dotfiles and I suppose that Gathsara doesn't have a lot of experiences with Linux like you.. ;)

Ah you're right in that aspect, I actually failed my first Arch install and wiped important data haha, I cried and went back to Windows 7...but that was 8 years ago and I was 10

I do agree a Mint installation is faster, but as I said: so much bloat!
But I am also one of the lucky few who has had no problems installing Nvidia drivers haha. My dotfiles took so long to make cuz I work on a highly customised fish and i3 workstation. My dotfiles were built over months of work, created whenever I wanted a certain functionality

I guess you're right, Arch may not be the best for a complete beginner, but I personally feel anyone can switch to it after a month or two of using Ubuntu/Manjaro daily
