This has been a very interesting week as we saw new releases of the LXQt desktop environment, Nuvola Player web-based music player for popular music streaming services, as well as the Escuelas Linux and EndeavourOS Linux distributions. In addition, the OpenMandriva team teased us with their upcoming OpenMandriva Lx 4.3 release and openSUSE Tumbleweed devs added the latest GNOME 40 desktop environment in their repos. Linux hardware vendors System76 and Star Labs also teased us with their upcoming COSMIC desktop environment for Pop!_OS Linux and the Coreboot Configurator tool, and the Metro Exodus FPS game arrived on Steam for Linux. Security-wise, there were new Linux kernel updates for all supported Ubuntu and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 releases, as well as for CentOS Linux 7.
