Manjaro developers do the great job not only due to their doubly checking Arch packages for improved stability of the rolling release distro, but developers also build very good administrative tools. These include and not limit to the tool for simply installing new kernels which they made possible in just a few clicks, as well as the simple tool for installing graphics drivers with choice of both free and proprietary ones. These tools are second to none in any other distro. Not to mention that Manjaro is an Arch derivative with one of the best and certainly the fastest package manager in the Linux world (https://www.tecmint.com/linux-package-managers/). Besides, Arch Build System (ABS) is also available, a ports-like system for packages, which has been praised as the best package management (originated in BSD). A variety of package managers for accessing Arch User Repository (AUR) is available too.

The best from Archlinux for just a few clics.

Easy to install, I always get the lastest updates, if I don't find a package on pacman package manager I will probably found it on AUR, if I want to have the lastest version I don't need to make a clean install, it works perfectly on every PC or laptop that I install it.

I can have 2 kernels easily. The best documentation is from Archlinux if by any case I need it, I would probably reach the actual problem in docs or forums.

The best choice ever!.

You can install it without much hassle, and it sorta works.

The drawbacks are the complete lack of administrative tools, making you to edit config files manually, the lack of a good package manager, and a ton of the development junk other distros put into -dev(el) and -doc packages, so the OS just steals the valuable disk space from you.
