That topic title
So wow! Some of you are aware of my existence on this forum and I just wanted to give some feedback. I really really enjoy this community and it's attitude. Over time I have come to despise social media and I have slowly isolated myself on the internet, which is wild because everyone (mostly) is on the damn thing.
I can't remember which pinned thread I just got done reading through but it was 119 posts long. The thing is I enjoyed the read. That's a lot of reading about help vampires and basically how to ask questions on here and insights into having consideration for the dev team. Very very easy to take the team for granted by the way. Not on purpose on my part but just newbieness.
My Garuda experience has been awesome. Garuda has been able to do everything I need it to do on my janky laptop. The help on the forums has been fast and friendly with maybe a nudge of RTFM sprinkled here and there. I wasn't abused requesting a raspberry pi flavor of Garuda which is a lot more than I realized I was asking for lol. By the way I like that you kept the request part of the forum. I don't mind being told no but I like that I can share ideas with the dev team. That's an awesome feeling and you never know when inspiration will strike.
I really enjoy the idea of teaching a user to fish. I like that ideology as a guide stone for the the forums. By all means push me to study harder, to still care about my education in technology. Windows sucks some of that soul out of you after excessive use. I do feel more equipped now to better prepare myself to either ask a question or figure it out. I feel a little more confident seeing Garuda in action and seeing how while it may be a task to fix it's very hard to actually break provided a little bit of paranoia about deleting you entire filesystem.
It's taken a few years to warm up to linux in general. Wasn't as shiny when I first meandered over here. -LOL- You know I think I'm just getting old perhaps. I don't care as much about the shine. More about the precision, the power, the motherlovin freedom! The real peace and quiet that comes with this particular flavor of technology design philosophy. It's Gardua though that really IMO brings everything I'm looking for together. A flawless blend of polish, power, and overall ease for the newb/user with plenty of room to grow and graze beyond those newbie pastures. An enviroment that inspires while giving the user access to near unlimited power if he/she should acquire the skill-set to make use of it. I feel like this is really where a user should start their journey with computer technology. Perhaps that's misguided having done all the tinkering I have over the years and of course the evolution of technology but still.
Anyways I enjoy it here. I enjoy this forum as a community. It's peaceful and meaningful. In the future I'll do more due diligence to research any issues I may have before I post a thread. I have a better understanding of the issue now and it makes sense to me that the search functionality of this forum is solid for current users and those to come. But by far you bunch are not rude that's hilarious. I found sincerity. Don't lose that!
All in all 10/10 distro at some point I'll get a review up on Distro Watch but also you're stuck with me. Hope that doesn't ruffle too many feathers. Keep up the great work!
