    Cool The Promise Land

    Every since I began using Linux with RH 5.0 on May 1, 1998, there were always things I wanted Linux to do.

    Today, a month before 20.04 goes gold, I can say that my 8 year old Acer Aspire V3-771G laptop has entered the Promise Land. Kubuntu with BTRFS, NVidia GT650M and Plasma 5.18.2 is .... amazing. Ten second cold boot times, lightening fast response, cooler operating, LOTS of configurability, and rock solid stable. My CPU is idling at 38C, which is about 7C cooler than pre-5.18 times. SpaceEngine-0.98, Universal Sandbox^2, Minecraft, MultiMC, Kerbal Space, the EKG analytical tool, SageMath, Gimp-2.10.9, HDsentinelGUI, CubicSDR radio, Kdenlive, OBS, and many more work flawlessly.

    The only thing that hasn't improved are my Solitaire scores.

    To Debian, Ubuntu, Kubuntu and the KDE dev crew, awesome job guys!
