I'm surprised nobody else has responded - does nobody else here use Ubuntu or some derivative?

As far back as May, I got the clear impression that Ubuntu 16.04 LTS was installing and running well. Admittedly many users are not using ATI graphics or are using the server version.

But then I remembered the complaints and bad reviews about ChaletOS/XUbuntu.

Still using Kubuntu 14.04. I have tried many of the newer versions of the most popular distros. Many were buggy but usable and some were just plain awful.

I still like using Linux but I'm still just a reboot away from Windows. By the way Win 10 is getting better, however I'm still using Win 7 as my default desktop.
