Its been quite long since I last made any update to my Desktop at home. After a full year of working from home, I finally decided to make it more modern.

My old desktop was a decent workhorse outlined here.

After some thinking I decided to update my CPU to AMD Ryzen 5 3600, instead of another Intel one. Ever since leaving Intel my trust on their products have been going down at ever alarming rate!

The main difference from my old desktop is in AMD CPU, WD NVMe SSD, Dell 4K Monitors and new Logitech MX Master Mouse.

In the next post, I will also add my guide to install Ubuntu on this machine using BTRFS and luks based full disk encryption.
