**GNOME** being a powerful, userfriendly, easy to use, customizable and fully accesible GTK3+ desktop environment, the Manjaro team has decided to offer the **GNOME edition** as a **third official flavour** with the 17.0 release.

The Manjaro Gnome edition stays close to vanilla GNOME while of course being customized and configured for out-of-the-box usability with all the proven features of a Manjaro edition like **Manjaro-Hardware-Detection**, **Manjaro-Settings-Manager**, **Pamac** package management and the new **Manjaro-Hello** welcome screen.  
**Linux 4.9** being the default kernel, the whole variety of Manjaro kernels from the mature and rock-solid 3.10 series to the latest 4.10 release and two realtime kernel series is available for easy installation with the Settings Manager.

The Gnome edition comes with these extension pre-installed

  * classic menu **Gnomenu**
  * **Openweather**
  * **TaskBar**, preview and icon of active applications
  * native GNOME dock **DashtoDock**
  * **User Themes** for easy customization and
  * **Removable drive menu**

More extensions can easily be installed via https://extensions.gnome.org/ using Firefox or also with **chrome-gnome-shell** from the Manjaro repos for Chrome(ium) browsers.

For everyday usage out-of-the-box you will find pre-installed:

  * **Firefox** browser
  * **Evolution** PIM and e-mail client
  * **Uget** download manager
  * **Transmission** for torrent download
  * **Imagewriter** ISO to USB
