On this episode of This Week in Linux, SUSE’s acquisition of Rancher Labs is now complete and I’ll tell you why this matters. System76 announced their first entry into the world of AMD powered Linux Laptops with the new Pangolin laptop. A developer seems to want to prove me wrong about Linux Support for Apple’s M1 Mac so we’ll talk about that. Pine64 announced that the KDE PinePhone is available for pre-order. Plus we’ve got a lot of desktop environment news this week with new releases of both Linux Mint’s Cinnamon and Solus’ Budgie desktop and the dreaded single-threaded issue for GNOME may be coming to an end. All that and much more coming up right now on This Week in Linux!

Thanks, @MichaelTunnell, very interesting show, with mostly very good news, too!
I hope the M1 project goes to completion. I’ve never been a fan of Apple myself, find them far too restrictive, but if they’ve left an avenue open on what looks like solid hardware, I’d love to see Linux on it!
There seems to be a lot on DEs all at the same time this week! I think Pine are great and any new thing they offer such as Plasma is exciting news to me. I’ve not upgraded my old Motorola phone for some time, in the hope that my next phone can be Linux not Android, but it does need to be a solid daily driver, so not sure we’re quite there yet with any of the current handsets?
