Lubuntu 21.04 is shortly reaching its EOL. This is true for all Ubuntu flavors.

From @guiverc @Lubuntu Discourse:


Of which the most important would be:

This means if you’re still using Lubuntu 21.04, you have at most a week to plan and perform your release-upgrade to move to the newer Lubuntu 21.10 release. If you don’t upgrade in time, you’ll find all security updates will cease, and adding software or subsequent release-upgrades maybe become more difficult.

You have been warned.

I did like that wallpaper (why I used it in the post).

I do feel somewhat guilty not using the default wallpaper in the post (given I suspect that's what most users will likely associate with 21.04), but it'll be that wallpaper/image that I'll miss the most.

( When did I actually see that wallpaper the most? Mostly after QA-test installs of *impish* or 21.10; where I'd have to boot other OSes that I was installing alongside to confirm they weren't touched... this is when I really notice the wallpapers the most.. That scene I always found calming, so I'd take a second, relax & look, before logging in (it was used at `sddm` if I recall correctly) to ensure the install was indeed untouched.... in a few days my 21.04 installs will become jammy installs as I QA-test install that alongside instead )

If anyone didn't realize it; not just flavors are EOL but all 21.04.

It was also fairly unique among the Lubuntu wallpapers that I remember.

On VMs, I never touch the wallpaper. In bare metal, I usually just slap a picture of a BMW on there and call it good. There's almost always a full-screen application open and I seldom see my wallpaper for any length of time. I don't even have icons on my desktop. I remove them all as unnecessary clutter. I open things from the quick launch or menu.
