When I used Manjaro for the most was stable and worked although I do remember updates causing some problems more than I liked.Recently I found Manjaro to be a bit "buggy", it just wasn't working as smoothly as it was in the past. I am not sure if it was the frequent kernel upgrades or the rolling release concept (both of which I really like, in theory). I recently switched back to Mint and I am considering giving Debian a shot once I solve my current laptop problem!
Well I have had a few computers desktops and laptops that just didn't like Linux and no matter what I tried Linux wouldn't install.Until this laptop I have never had these problems. I am pretty sure it is related to the BIOS. Despite disabling secure boot, currently I am unable to even boot from a live USB!
