Manjaro Linux Cinnamon Community Edition is an open source operating system based on the powerful and flexible Arch Linux distribution and built around the Cinnamon desktop environment.

Can be downloaded as Live DVDs for the mainstream architectures

The Cinnamon edition of Manjaro Linux can be downloaded as a Live DVD ISO image for 64-bit (x86_64) computers. The ISO image has approximately 2GB in size and must be written to either a DVD disc or a USB flash driver in order to boot it from the BIOS of a PC.

Includes standard Manjaro boot options

From the boot menu, the user will be able to start the live environment with default boot options or with non-free drivers, boot an existing operating system from the first disk drive, view detailed hardware information, as well as to perform a memory test.

Modern and fast graphical session powered by Cinnamon

As you might know, Cinnamon is a modern desktop environment for Linux distributions, developed and distributed by the team behind the famous Linux Mint operating system. In this distro, it is comprised of a bottom panel from where users can easily and quickly find and launch applications, as well as to interact with them.

Includes a standard set of open source applications

No surprises here, as the distribution includes a standard set of open source applications, pretty much the same as on other Manjaro editions. Among some of the most important ones, we can mention Mozilla Firefox, HexChat, SciTE, LibreOffice, Brasero, VLC Media Player and Viewnior.

Bottom line

Summing up, the Cinnamon flavor of Manjaro is here to give users a stable, reliable, modern and fast operating system. Keep in mind that just like Arch Linux, Manjaro is a rolling release, which means that users don't need to download a new ISO image to upgrade the system each time a new release is announced.
