I am no starting any flame war here, nor want to get agnist anyone on this forum or the Linux comm, but
I have using Linux and Manjaro for some time, and I must say "it is the bomb" !!
I mean, it really is great!
Fast, reliable, stable, all you can want
When I am trying (Tried) using Nvidia latest drivers (stable or unstable, you name it), as the saying goes "all hell loose free"
Glitehces, blak screen, screen not coming back from lock, kernel panic and so on
nothing but misery
Now, I have tried all, using the manjaro mhwd (a great util!), both the GUI and the CLI, I have manually configure the xorg.conf
I have used the nvidia-settings for the xorg.conf
No matter what I did, the system wasn't as good as using the free drivers
so, for now I am keeping the free ones, they are stable, fast and seem to do the work, but I really hope that one day as an Nvidia user (who said a brand new 2080TI one day?! ) I will be able to use latest driver without any issue
I really hope that someone in the Linux comm or Nvidia pick the glove and fix all issues (I know I am not the only one, all the web is full with compliments like this, just use google and see)
