Manjaro Deepin is an edition of Manjaro Linux that uses the Deepin Desktop Environment, which is a desktop environment that originated from the Deepin Linux, a desktop distribution that’s based on Ubuntu.
The main edition of Manjaro uses the K Desktop Environment (KDE). Manjaro Deepin is just one of many community-supported desktop environments available to users of the Arch Linux-based desktop distribution. The others are: Budgie, Cinnamon, GNOME 3, i3, LXQt and MATE.
The Deepin desktop environment is one of the better-designed desktop environments avialable in Linux, but as beautiful as it is, it doesn’t work very well in a virtual environment using VirtualBox, or with some graphics cards, especially those from AMD, so take advantage of the Live desktop before attempting to install it on your computer.
