Sounds like an improvement. I'll look forward to this version arriving in Arch too.

I've been running 2.6 on both my laptop and desktop PC (both have LM 17.1/Cinnamon installed) for a several days now. Cinnamon is up to version 2.6.7 at the moment.

Not only is CPU usage down but the Cinnamon process significantly uses less memory as well which is good since it tended to be a bit of a hog depending on how may apps you had open at one time.

The Cinnamon DE is much more polished all around but especially in Setttings. The panel features and functions have been greatly improved.

You can check out all the improvements here:

Rolling releases are good. I'm still in Arch. Its nice to not be concerned with major releases in order to stay current.

Manjaro Linux 0.8.13 Release Candidate 2 is now ready for testing. While the Xfce edition comes with Xfce 4.12, the KDE flavor now includes KDE Plasma 5.3.1, KDE Applications 15.04.1, and KDE Frameworks 5.10.0. Go forth and test!

If it lets you choose your init system, is yet the best Arch variation, IMHO.

So Hacker Experience went down today for whatever reason. In the meantime I'm checking out something else called 'Hacker Forever'. Looks interesting at  the least.
