New distro for me

On a whim, I installed Garuda, and I had a few issues afterwards, but nothing insurmountable (and most if not entirely all of my own making).
I am enjoying it (some indefinable attraction), though I am mostly running Sway with Xwayland disabled, with some I3 when I find something I need to do in X.
I somehow broke lightdm, not sure how...but oh well, sddm has always worked better for me with Wayland anyway (oddly), maybe I'll try to fix it on the next rainy day.

I have almost more years with Linux than Linus does, but not nearly that level of expertise, though I have contributed a few things long ago and far away. These days, I'm just a tinkerer and not a coder. I like figuring out new things.

I would love to see more discussion of I3/Sway configurations in the forums. It would afford me an opportunity to learn more.

Oh, you've also convinced me that btrfs is wonderful (had never tried it before).

Nice to see so many new people enjoying what Garuda has to offer recently.

When you are that old you get confused with things :smiley: :rofl:


My first "computer".
Texas Instruments TI-99/4A (1982)
I don't say how old I was then :wink:

Second

I'm older than Linus and I installed the .99 release long ago, when I was a grad student in the CS lab. So...it's close :wink:
I'm not saying I had more to do with it (far from it)..just tenure.

This is not an accomplishment/feat :slight_smile: but coincidence/fate.


So you already used something he hadn't invented yet?
Cool. But forgive me, I use a translator.


Maybe he is older than @mandog, @c00ter and me :thinking: :slight_smile: :wink:

But even that would not bother us Linux lovers :slight_smile:

Welcome

Poor, @c00ter.

That's not right picking on the old guys. :rofl:

Especially after they say nice things about your distro! Ok, keep up the good work, and umm, yeah, write documentation...that'll do for you! (for those using translations, I mean that will punish you sufficiently)
