I have been checking out Garuda Linux in a VM these last few days.
Interesting ideas here. Doesn't seem mentioned alot, but great job on the services ( bitwarden, nextcloud, searx ). Very good to see this.
Also really like the firedragon browser, since I am a librewolf use... saves me half hour of compilations
hblock is also cool, although I do have a personal pihole. But its another great idea in terms of online privacy.
also cool tools on the terminal... I myself didn't knew about bat and exa.
using btrfs and zram also very nice with timeshift, although I prefer the "opensuse" style of doing backups ( and RO root filesystem with transactional server or microOS ). But its better than nothing.
and the other tools are very cool also ( although there seems to be some bugs ).
The desktop layout is very nice also, very similar to what I have. ( actually the distro has a lot of similarities with what i setup on gentoo ). So overall I really like the decisions/ideas/selections here.
minus points -> I really don't like the "look" of the dragonized desktop. Its cool for screenshots ( the wallpaper is awesome, and the effect at login in and out of kde is very nice indeed ). I am more of a "formal look minimalistic" kinda guy.
Well ... just wanted to say congrats on the services online which seems very cool and the distro.
