I'm not new to Linux but pretty new to Arch and Garuda. (side note: why do I need to add the name Garuda to the dictionary of this correction tool? LOL)
I definitely fell in love with this OS.
My Linux experience is from starting Ubuntu 2010 to working with ScientificLinux and of course distro hopping. I had Ubuntu as daily for years, hopped to Mint Debian OSUSE and stopped b/c I ended up with Gentoo. I ran it as daily for almost two years.
The past few years I'm mostly on Win10.
I'm currently trying to switch back to Linux mostly b/c of two reasons:
First the internet becomes even more a nightmare (well... some positives ppl got the NVIDIA sources leaked LOL) and
Second Linux is more than ever able to use Windows based programs and games. *blushing over to Valve.
My deal breaker for my transition is DaVinci Resolve Studio but it works Even within a hour. Which made me join this community since I expect to continuing with Garuda. As daily work horse and gaming platform. I'm currently trying Garuda on my 2nd SSD until I get everything working properly. My AMD card is for sure an advantage there
I hope you're doing good!
And Congratz to the Garuda Team which has a fairly new Distro hovering in the Top10 of Distrowatch
Ooof Slackware. Didn't they just released an updater .. after 5 years or so? XD
To me Arch is pretty different but I like the challenge tbh. Although Garuda offers even more comfort than any "beginner orientated" Distro imho. While even keeping it open to the user to tinker. That's pretty cool.
Hi @SGS sure I think a "hello to all" and a short introduction is important. Considering there are real ppl on the other side and - well, call me a nostalgic boomer - it is a matter of respect imho. And thanks that's a nice badge
Garuda is in the TOP10
Garuda has been around for more than 2 years, but sure, it feels younger :wink:
That's fairly young for a distro at least from my perspective.
