Today marks 2 months of using Windows 11 exclusively. I've been using it for a work project and I've not used my Linux desktop machine once in that time. I really missed GNOME when I started using Windows, but as the weeks have gone on, I've found Windows to be a more than capable alternative. Not sure if it is related, but I recently received an email from Satan in which he was bemoaning the cold weather he has been experiencing of late.
