While it does work very well on my low powered laptop, I'm still looking forward to getting back to my fast computer. For now, I have named it Temperamental.

I forgot to mention that I did perform the upgrade from 5.1 to 5.2. I wasn't prompted for the upgrade but I didn't really wait very long either, maybe a few days. The suggested way to upgrade is either by accessing Lite Upgrade in the Settings area opening Lite Welcome and scrolling down to the Upgrading section and clicking on the button there. For me, Lite Upgrade wasn't installed apparently so I used the latter method. After the upgrade, the Lite Upgrade program was available.

The upgrade was easy, quick and uneventful. Probably the fasted upgrade I've ever done, maybe 5 minutes? And I don't recall noticing any significant changes. As its version number would suggest it was really more of an update than an upgrade. There are lots of little tweaks which, honestly, is fine by me. I don't think every new release of a Linux distribution version has to be a dramatic change.

Here's a screenshot showing one of the lovely wallpapers that are included. For Buster.

Nice looking desktop.

And it's all them. Other than the messy icons. That's on me. :)
