Translations of "Finally"

Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? i finally understood or i have finally understood
A: There’s a little difference between them
when you add ‘have’, it means you are describing an experience in general, without specifying the time when it happened; have+ past tense is more commonly used with + just: ‘i have just understood now’ for example
Also, when you say ‘i have finally understood’, it sounds a little dramatic

So ‘i finally understand’ is more used and better for most situations

Other questions about "Finally"

Q: What does "well i finally have my mac pro the way i had it exactly with arch linux" mean?

well i finally have my mac pro the way i had it exactly with arch linux
that also includes my last real gripe: 2d acceleration is on my geforce 8800 gt instead of my radeon r7 250
A: This means the speaker has their computer (a Macbook Pro) back the way the speaker likes it. Arch Linux I think is a software. So the computer probably got an update with new software that the speaker didn't like.

The other stuff in the second paragraph is related to performance of the computer I think? I don't know a lot about computerware, but the person is saying they have fixed their other problem (gripe) too.
Q: I can FINALLY get my own life back, finally, after six months of suffering from relationship troubles with online trolls and online bullying. Does this sound natural?
A: Two ways to fix:
1. You can remove "own." Split into two sentences.
"I can FINALLY get my life back! Six months of suffering from relationship troubles with online trolls and online bullying is finally over."

^^^this is okay, but "with online trolls" makes this a very wordy, long sentence.
"I can FINALLY get my (own) life back! Six months of suffering from relationship troubles and online bullying is finally over."

2.Change order. I also changed "own" to "old" to get a similar effect, but using more typical phrasing.
"After six months of suffering from relationship troubles with online trolls and online bullying, I can FINALLY get my old life back.
