Fresh install on both of my frequently used OS's. Now on cutting edge versions. As always, I've done little other than change a few colours and settings.


Windows 10 Pro 21H1



Kubuntu 21.04



KDE Plasma 5.21 is simply amazing. If the game compatibility and Office 365 support was there I'd likely be running a Linux distro as my primary OS again. Slackware 15 looks like it is due to come out soon and it has Plasma 5.21, I'll probably replace Kubuntu with Slackware once it's released.
