Philip Müller he said the release of Manjaro Linux 21.1.0, the latest stable distribution that comes with different DE: Xfce, GNOME and KDE.

If you are already using the distribution you do not need to download the new ISO unless you want to do a clean install.
For those unfamiliar with Manjaro, the Arch Linux-based distribution is scalable, and its goal is to make things easier for novice Linux users.
Manjaro's installation is simple and can be done with two different graphical applications but also traditional via the terminal.
Manjaro automates a lot of processes that Arch has to do manually.
So after installation you will not need to install Wi-Fi drivers etc. The installer will detect the hardware you are using and will pass what your system needs.
Personally I find the Manjaro distribution very stable, and I would highly recommend it to users who want to get away from its operating system Canonical.
If you are a Linux beginner I suggest you try the KDE version. It looks very familiar to Windows friends and you can customize it as you wish. As for the KDE version it is always the latest to be released as the Manjaro operating system is a cutting edge distribution.
