New user from Italy

Hi
I just installed Garuda on my old personal/gaming desktop (upgrading these days is something of a problem).
I'm a long time KDE fan, but I am new to Arch.
I must say I'm very impressed so far, both by the system and dr460nized desktop.
I may be posting a few topics as I encounter small hiccups as I make Garuda my new distributon.
Thank you for the incredible work you are doing.

Hey guys, we are a lot. ( A rega ma semo na cifra :smiley: ). Un riassuntino delle mie esperienze linuxiane da principiante non sono un'esperto. A summary of my linuxian experiences but I'm not an expert, i am just a desktop user.
I started in 2002 with Knoppix, then I moved on to Gentoo, then Fedora, then Debian, brasilian Dreamlinux, Ubuntu, Arch, Manjaro and now, for about a year and a half now, Garuda Linux. Great satisfactions.
