Recently i switched the OS on my main mashine to Linux Mint 19.3 Tricia.
Before i was using Ubuntu for about 6 years, when moving away from Macos, which was getting to cumbersome, proprietary and slow on the mac.
Now, Ubuntu was not getting to slow, but there are good reasons to slowly leave canonical – namely Snap.. Slowly, because i firstly switched to the Ubuntu based Linux Mint: I’m into apt and i like the PPAs. Manjaro however, could be a valid mid-term option. Perhaps moving to Suse (which was my first Linux experience in 1998) could be an option as well 😉
