Return of the LinuXP: The Search for Another Distro

Thought I forgot about this project, eh? Nope. So, after the initial tests for Linux Mint, I wondered if there might perhaps be another distro I overlooked. LM was a pretty good choice, but it also had its issues. Thing is though, I wonder if they were actually caused by the distro versus the shitty off-brand removable HDD I was using at the time that later on died. I also just never quite finished the LinuXP project, truly getting it ready for portable use. So I'm going to look around some more and see what I can pull up. Linux Mint is still definitely in the running, but I also found Manjaro Linux and its sheer focus on compatibility. Exactly what I was looking for. If Manjaro doesn't work though, I'm going back to LM.

I'll update this thread as milestones are completed, whenever that is.

For those who have no idea what the hell LinuXP even is, head here: https://intosanctuary.com/index.php?threads/we-now-have-our-own-linux-distribution.433/

Bump. Manjaro is working insanely good! No weird ass errors. No dumb install routine. No nothing. It just fucking works. Finally! And it seems to boot fast too! But I gotta test that with a full install.
