  1. Mint news always makes me smile! :smiley:

  2. Thanks, @MichaelTunnell - ouch, not good news about those security breaches, especially not liking 23forme TOS update. I’m wondering if UEFI patching requires firmware update from laptop vendor?

    I also agree with the colour configuration of BSOD. I think some very valid variations mentioned by you :slight_smile:
