I am a 50 year old guy living in Sweden.
I have been a Linux user for a couple decades. But I have only used and tried debian based distros. I have tried pure arch and Manjaro earlier but always found them too cumbersome. I thought that MX-Linux were gonna be the last distro I used, I have not doen much distro hopping in 5 years. But I read a lot about Garuda Linux so I thought I might give it a try. I downloaded the KDE version.
I have been using Garuda for the past month or so and find it very nice, especially the BTRFS and easily handled snapshots that takes away lots of the risks with a bleeding edge distro. But I still have not experienced any problems after updates or software installations. And Arch/garuda feels notably faster than MX. Even some quirks I have had with my monitor (in MX I couldnt get 120Mhz from my monitor, just 100Mhz) and occacional problems with waking up from sleep (monitor stayed black) But everything just seems to work. Kudos to the developers!
