    Starting with Ubuntu 19.04, the package ‘fd-find‘ can be installed the usual way. There is no need to download and install the deb file manually.

    Can you back up the claims that it’s faster than the original ‘find’?

    If not – this is just a bunch of code and another out of district piece of software to maintain yourself.

    Looks like it was written so that the author doesn’t need to learn ‘find’ options and/or brag about a nearly useless piece of software.
