**What have we been up to Linux related this Week?**
Martin – Have been trying out Garuda Linux
Matt – Learned a bit about bumblebee-status, which turns out to be a neat little status bar. And I've been pondering switching to MX Linux as my daily driver because I liked it so damn much in my little first look. Also, I got a DAC because my audio setup wasn't complicated enough.
