    When you try out Manjaro you try out Manjaro not Arch Linux.

    I like how most keep whining that Arch is supposedly so tedious to install and that it takes so long.
    LOL what a load of horseshit. Setting up Arch is a lot faster than most distros. Installing Arch means typing 6 commands into the terminal.

    "gdisk /dev/sda" Press "n" to make a partition". Press "w" to write changes.
    "mkfs.ext4 /dev/sda1"
    "mount /dev/sda1 /mnt"
    "pacstrap /mnt base base-devel syslinux"
    "syslinux-install_update -i -a -m -c /mnt"
    "genfstab -p /mnt > /mnt/etc/fstab"

    Tada. Arch is installed. Reboot. Point the default syslinux config to your root partition and boot it.

    Get yourself an ip address with "dhcpd <interface>" and install network manager and enable it with systemd so you have internet right away the next time you boot.
    Install your prop. graphcs driver which also pulls in xorg.

    Want a desktop? Install one of the meta packages and enable the desktop manager with systemd. Create a user. Reboot. Tada there's your Arch Linux destop.

    Wow that was super hard and took a full 6-7 minutes.
