One of the biggest reasons I love GNOME and Pantheon is that they *don't* feel like Windows. Say what you will about familiarity, but GNOME and Pantheon are great because they *don't* adhere to the traditional desktop metaphor.
This may be why I think Cinnamon is "boring."
Y'all, everybody gets called out sometimes. @Jewbacchus called me out for posting something I didn't know was anti-semitic and another friend checked me when I was using ableist language. Trying to avoid fucking up is trying to avoid learning and growing. Be grateful folks think you're worth investing the time in to not make an ass of yourself. There's nothing wrong with apologizing, & fighting that L doesn't help anybody. We all gotta take it sometimes. Not everything's an attack.

#LibreOffice 6.2 has been out for a couple of weeks now, including the official release of the new "Tabbed (notebook) Toolbar." For those M$ Office users, it's very "Ribbon-like."
I've used it now for a while and I'm pleased. It's nice to have all the tools in one spot rather than drilling through menus.
Like anything new, it changes workflow, so there's some adjustment time. Works fine, looks great.
