Sad to hear you are leaving. But everybody has a freedom of choice. Would be
interesting to know which distro you are going to use after Arch :)
Thanks for nice wishes. Wish you the same! Have a lot of fun!

worship Him who made the heaven and the earth and sea and springs of
waters." Revelation 14:7
