9to5Linux Weekly Roundup: March 14th, 2021

This has been a slow week in Linux news, but we had some very nice releases, both on the hardware and software sides. New Linux computers saw the light of day from TUXEDO Computers and System76, Star Labs added Coreboot support to their LabTop Mk III laptop, and Mesa 21.0 graphics stack launched with many goodies for Linux gamers. On top of that, Canonical shared a first look at their upcoming new Ubuntu Desktop installer and announced the upcoming transition to ESM (Extended Security Maintenance) support for Ubuntu 16.04 (Xenial Xerus), and I?m talking a look at a new Debian-based distro called TeLOS, which promises a different approach on the Linux desktop.
