KDE Discover, Debian 10 With KDE Plasma, and GNOME Themes

  • Bundle Up, It's Time To Discover Some Apps
    I absolutely did, and here you go! The culmination of ten years of scheming and plotting has come to fruition, and we finally have a way to deliver software in a more social fashion. Now, I realise you are going to scream at us all and say distributions are great at this.
