Hello there to all!
I'm a French Canadian and heard about Garuda on Jan 1st 2021 and since then I spent hours every day reading about it. It got pinned in my head pretty hard!
I have been using Kubuntu daily for the past 13 years and every time I was trying a different distro I always ended up back at Kubuntu and so never made the jump out. But with Garuda... wow! Really impressive! Garuda has even fixed a few glitches I had on Kubuntu including 1-2 annoying. So far everything is working as I want with less efforts than on Kubuntu. I do have a long way learning about Arch, but it's not that complicated.
Which DE am I using?
Originally I was not a fan of eye-popping looks with glowy colors like Dr460nized, however the more I was testing it on a VM the more I loved it! And although I installed KDE Multimedia on real hardware, yesterday I decided re-installting to switch for Dr460nized.
I don't know how the maintainers do it, but tweaking the core to be fast and responsive still with great stability, well implemented/integrated DEs and off the chart themings that are truly a work of Art, I'm really really impressed!
Finally a distro intended to increase user experience. I like that! I was finding Kubuntu getting really... old style, dull and slow in its evolution.
Thanks to Garuda now and I truly hope the distro will continue following its path.
I also hope to be able to participate in some ways to its evolution and community.
Let's spread the word about the Eagle!
