For Sale: Linux Manjaro Desktop $230
Is this you? You know Bob, all I do with a computer is Facebook, email, web apps, and order stuff from Amazon and eBay. I do want an Office Suite and I want to play music, movies, and games. I don't run Quickbooks or Office 365. My computer runs slow. I don't know if my anti-virus database is up to date or not. File fragmentation and registry errors do not concern me. I just want the thing to work every time I turn it on. Is that too much to ask?
Linux is the most secure of all the operating systems and it's easy to use. You don't have viruses, registry errors, file fragmentation, slow downs, or crashes. Linux just works and it doesn't spy on you. If you don't use any proprietary Windows software, this is perfect for you.

Linux has been evolving for 25 years. This open source tech runs the internet, chromebooks, android phones, and all your smart devices. Manjaro is a rolling release which means you don't have to install a newer operating system every few years: There's no expiration date. Most devices are plug and play (drivers included). Daily updates cover all installed applications. Linux checks the SMART data on drives to alert you to any drive problems. Computers should be a joy to use, not an endless and costly headache. If you're disillusioned with consumer-grade hardware and proprietary software, then it's time to step up. Open Source implies rapid evolution and improvement of code due to free access. There's no registration and no licensing either; you don't need permission to use a Linux system on your computer. All software and updates are free.
