They seem positive..

but they obviously decided not to do any updates before starting the review.

:thinking:

(which is sorta odd to begin with ... but especially since they went about installing stuff, and mentioning which version of mesa we serve... which is currently 19+, 19.0.1-2 in unstable)

.. And I liked how they fit the stationx laptop in there 'that needs a review' - as in "forbes please buy me this laptop" :laughing:

Just remember the line

sudo pacman-mirrors -f && sudo pacman -Syyuu
