All pretty cutting Edge. Few changes as usual, just colour tweaks, I've been pretty happy with the defaults for several years now across all OS's I use.



Windows 11 Pro - Installed it on release day. Had played with the insider programme before and wasn't a huge fan initially but I couldn't imagine going back to 10 now.



macOS Monterey - Installed it on my laptop last night, not had much of a chance to play with it yet but it seems to be fine. Running it on an M1 MBA.



Kubuntu 21.10 - I have always liked KDE and it is my favourite DE, another solid release. I'll probably swap out Kubuntu for Slackware 15 when it's released.
