:: Replace linux-pine64 with pine64/linux-megi? [Y/n]
:: Replace linux-pine64-headers with pine64/linux-megi-headers? [Y/n]

Most of us are guilty of distro-hopping at some point or another. With that being said, what is that one distro you always come back to? For us it's been Manjaro Gnome. @manjarolinux you've got us all hooked.
