We gotz it! First hubby, while I was making toast and brewed coffee in the kitchen, and now I. Look:
Apparently the greatest, mostest importantest Linux Kernel in the history of ever! And Linus, the man himself, couldn’t wait for something more memorable, like Kernel 6.0 or sumfink but had to pack all the goodies into an interim Kernel, like 5.8 or wot?
Anyhoo, what do I care? I have no idea what all the great new things are we were promised. But what I know, and what gives me the warm tingling feels in my tummy, is the simple fact that hubby and me, as Archies, got this kernel obviously weeks before it comes to the poor third world of Ubuntu-ish distros and other nonsense Linuxes. Before it hits the grandfather of all distros, the mighty Debian, it will maybe even take years. I guess the Deb crowd is still happily computing away on Kernel 4.8 or sumfink. 😉
So, I know what you wanted to ask. And the answer is no. No, life doesn’t feel any different. It’s still the amazing Endeavour/Mate combo that fits me so nicely. I guess the new stuff in Kernel 5.8 is predominantly working under the hood and we’re not even supposed to notice anything different. 😉
