one of the things that turned me off from using Garuda Linux BSPWM was the use of the XFCE task manager instead of
polybar or `lemonbar'. Is that still the standard or have you switched?
Sorry WM's aren't my thing, I couldn't tell you. Why don't you simply download it and see. If it's still not to your liking, then change it to however you'd like. That is the beauty of Linux compared to Apple or M$, you can configure Linux however you want.
