Can be downloaded as Live DVDs for the mainstream architectures
The Cinnamon edition of Manjaro Linux can be downloaded as Live DVD ISO images for the 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (x86_64) instruction set architectures. Each ISO image has approximately 1GB in size and must be written to either DVD discs or USB flash drivers 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.
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.
