    Hope they pushed past 5.11.5/6 before release. Had some bluetooth/wifi stability issues up until that point. Seems there was a buffer overflow/memory bug in a few of the device drivers.

      Would have liked to see pipewire for audio and GNOME 40, as well as KDE Wayland sessions from them but it's still going to be a pretty solid release.

        Failed install, failed install, successful install, black screen with blinking white dot at top left after reboot.
        I will wait till later.

          Hirsute Hippo needs a conditioner, then.

            They're conservative and use a lot of GNOME plugins so 40 not yet isn't that surprising. Same with pipewere. It isn't that spread in use outside of a small set of users on rolling distributions like Fedora, Arch, Gentoo, and SUSE.

            I would have liked to have seen their ZFS installer added to Kubuntu. Kind of disappointed me when I read that on their bug tracker the other day.

              Maybe they should get around to fixing that bug from 2013 that makes the desktop unusable https://bugs.launchpad.net/gnome-shell/+bug/1181666
