  • Here's How To Install Pop!_OS's COSMIC On Manjaro

    A lot of people in the Linux community love Pop!_OS mainly because of its altered GNOME (now COSMIC) desktop environment.

But there are people who like COSMIC but not Ubuntu (Since Pop!_OS is Ubuntu-based), or some tend to like Arch more because of the package management. One of the beauties of GNU/Linux and open source is the teams of different OSes working together to bring stuff that people like in one or the other distribution.
