Kali Linux Discord “Hackers” are Fake…

So here’s the situation.

I myself really like its workflow and don’t really do that many changes to the default settings. (Oh, and by the way, I am using the default GNOME installation on Debian using the gnome metapackage.) So today I am going to talk about Stepping up your GNOME. (*laughter sound effects*)
