My name is TheLamerLinux but I also go by Lamer as my online name. I've tried Garuda Plasma and Gnome and the past, really liked the Gnome but in my opinion Garuda was always bloated and didn't see the point of using Garuda because how bloated it was.
Then I listen to Destination Linux and their interview with one of the dev and he explain what is Garuda and why they made it, I really liked how he explain why they came up with Garuda. But my problem was it was bloated, I hate installing it and then remove the application it came with. Then I saw Barebones, I remember trying out Barebones in the past but I think I got a bad ISO because it always brought me the the CLI and this time it didn't.
I love the tools Garuda comes with and was worried that the Barebones will be an Arch installer like ISO, but after downloading and burning the ISO and using the live USB I was happy to see that it came with the tools.
I've used Endeavour for almost 2 months, end of this week would be my second month but after trying Garuda it stolen my love for Endeavour especially seeing my printer works better on Garuda than Endeavour.
So far Garuda is doing really good and hoping to it'll get better longer I use it
