Garuda Hyprland February .iso

New user to Garuda here, but certainly not new to linux. I’ve been using linux since 1994 and was using Unix on PDP10/11 and AIX before that. I currently use Kali rolling on my other laptop and have been using that for the past several years. I was using the December .iso available on the site, but just found the February 18th .iso and installed it instead.

Running the Hyprland edition and I’ve got to say, the improvement to boot up time as well as the much improved waybar are outstanding!!

Here’s my inxi:

This is installed on an old as heck Toshiba Satellite C55 touchscreen with 16gb ram and a 500gb SSD. I was running the KDE version of Garuda and this is a million times faster on this dated machine (though Garuda KDE was faster then Kali KDE even with all effects turned on!)

Keep up the outstanding work guys!


Many thanks for the praise and
