  1. Thanks, @MichaelTunnell :slight_smile: Just starting to catch up again. Been a bit busy because on a bootcamp - Quality Engineering - which is fantastic, but the pace is quite frenetic!

    I am so looking forward to Cosmic. It sounds like a winner for many reasons. Also, Kindle app is about the only thing I still really need Windows for, so I do wish Wine 9.0 would have brought compatibility with that. I doubt it’s the fault of the fine Wine folks (no pun intended!), just a wish I’ve long had.
