A few things really.
  • It brings Arch to the masses in an easy to use format with some updates held back to avoid potential issues (not always successful but the end result is probably more stable than other rolling releases).
  • Excellent aesthetics especially for the KDE version.
  • Large active community with assorted community spins.
  • Excellent modern approach to product marketing (compare the Manjaro site with Mint and you'll see when I mean)
