I’m following Deno development with great interest, some of which is professional and some, well… I guess it’s the sheer joy of discovering something so neat, yet unsullied by compromise and legacy concerns.

I thought I landed on Regolith for daily use, but the Cinnamon Desktop keeps dragging me back. It’s just so darn neat.
