I'm new to Backdrop and my initial impressions are very good.
- Installed on XAMPP with no issues
- Had a quick look around and I can say it's super fast with clean interfaces
- I love that I can search for modules and update core from within my site
- Menu search facility is also cool
- But the killer for me is the layout and I'm so loving it
Couple of clarifications:
- Couldn't find Ban module, was it removed too?
- Any plans to add screenshots to themes?
I'll keep exploring and will definitely provide feedback on my journey into the world of Backdrop.
Keep up the good work guys
