This week was quite busy with lots of great announcements, starting with the ability of Linux kernel 6.1 on Ubuntu and the new wallpaper competition for the upcoming Lunar Lobster release, the end of life of the Linux 6.0 kernel series, and a new flavor of the upcoming Unity 7.7 desktop environment with Wayland support.

On top of that, System76 teased us with a beefed-up Pangolin Linux laptop, Canonical released more kernel security updates for all supported Ubuntu releases, and MX Linux 21 users finally received the Xfce 4.18 desktop environment.
