That is pretty cool. Haven't installed Arch just because I just haven't had the time to mess with it. I might have to try this out.

Manjaro is indeed based on Arch  but with all the difficult parts like building the system taken care of for you

 

I have Rum Manjaro since its inception maybe 4 yrs ago  till today and have never had any problems  ..this is a lot due to the manjaro devs testing all packages before they release them ..where with Arch you can update things almost daily but its more down to you to correct any issues. 

 

But saying that Vanilla Arch has always been very stable for me as well..
