Hi, Garuda is fine, good distro but there is one downside of garuda and that is slow boot. I used garuda-kde-lite months ago and it was just fine that time. however i installed it today again and the boot is very slow. I think this is because of btrfs and zstd( might be) .. but seriously btrfs by default and zstd is not beneficial. I never got my data curropted in ext4 ... ext4 is working perfectly from years for me. garuda claims to be only focused on performance but the starting point( boot time ) itself is extremely slow. I will request the developers to fix this issue. This issue have been raised by many before and is a serious issue. --- Garuda takes many seconds to show the grub bootloader.---
and while installing from a live media.. it not only takes time to show bootloader but also lags in bootloader while os is very smooth. KDE is very smooth .. (NOTE: i also have qtile edition and this issue also exists in qtile)
