Fantastic facility to heavy user and common users too Recuperating Desktop via snapshots and grub too.
A based Manjaro best than Manjaro.
Totally friendly user. Light use of memory too even with the KDE Plasma Desktop
Beautiful Desktop enviroment and personalised Control Center optimezed.
Besides this in Big Linux we have Webapps and Webapps installer... a easy way to use some web applications, some pré-instaled like Google apps, other like Netflix, Facebook, Waze, Instagram,Telegram, Amazon, Office 365 and Whatsapp...

I've been using Linux for 13 years. I've used Debian, Arch, Ubuntu, Manjaro and others distros and I've been using BigLinux for almost seven months now and I'm loving the experience. Everything is out-of-the-box and it's smooth. What I like most is that BigLinux has a very active and acessible community. Regarding the desktop environment, they have a personalized KDE with a lot of improvements for the End User, beatiful wallpapers and easy system configurations. You can use BigLinux for multiple multiple purposes, like gaming, development, broswing the web, studies. I'm using for studies.
