Ghidra: few thoughts after 3-day usage

As many other cybersecurity enthusiasts, I was so excited with the release of Ghidra which is another great tool added to the toolkit of reverse engineers and malware analysts. So I decided to spend 3 days using Ghidra to solve some simple Crackme challenges site by site with IDA free version as a base for my evaluation. The reason I chose IDA as the baseline is that IDA is kind of de facto for reverse engineering and it is the tool that I feel most comfortable when doing such tasks.
