Thank you!

Thank you everyone for another fantastic week. We just passed 25K followers on Twitter so I can’t thank you enough for your continued support. Thank you for your comments, likes, retweets, shares, suggestions, tips, and whatnot. You guys rock!

This week we saw the release of a lot of goodies for everyone, starting with the LibreOffice 7.4 office suite and KDE Gear 22.08 software suite, and continuing with Ubuntu’s availability on the VisionFive RISC-V development board, a new Manjaro Linux release for ARM devices, and a new Proton release for Linux gamers.

On top of that, Mozilla Thunderbird 91 users were finally able to upgrade to Thunderbird 102, GNOME fans were able to test drive the beta release of the upcoming GNOME 43 desktop environment, and those in the market of a new Linux laptop were able to pre-order the brand-new StarBook MK VI from Star Labs.
