so i guess i did get approved.

Somehow i had over 3400 posts at Scot's Newsletter Forum.
My main claim to fame at Scot's is probably being the starter of what got named "Interesting Stuff You Saw on the I-net Today"

Pipewire is showing up in Debian Testing - at least on my install it is.

Nice, are you going to test it?

Linux Help, News and Information / The Goldilocks Desktop Environment

That's gotta be Xfce.
It's not so lightweight that you feel like you are making a choice between footprint and function, but not so heavyweight that it's a slug on old hardware.
It has a nice collection of tools for File Management and Terminal activities.
It is rock stable and doesn't change all that often.
It is easy to customize because it has enough drag and drop capability.
Distros like Manjaro and MX-Linux use it as default, and polish it to quite beautiful appearances.
Certain parts of it - like XFWM4 Window Manager - can be used as part of even lighter DEs like LXQt.
It's arguably nobody's first choice for a desktop, but everybody's second choice.
When I installed Arch Linux for the first time, it was the first desktop environment I wanted to install.
I would guess that everyone who uses Linux, has run Xfce at one time or other. It's the "good enough", Swiss Knife DE.

My list would contain thousands. I'm a serious reader. Have been since mom taught me to read at three years old. More can be found about my reading habits on my Profile@Goodreads.

Here's one I just finished that was just wonderful!

Anthony Doerr's Cloud Cuckoo Land

Don't let the silly title put you off. The book is truly astounding.
