Bugs in Linux

I have never had any problems with Linux until Ubuntu 23.10. Waiting for Ubuntu 24.04 LTS

Thank you

Thank you for your show. Interesting to hear from someone coming from Windows to Linux with an open mind. Being on Linux since 2001 and only using Windows when constrained to it by university or employer, it's always good to get the view of the other side.

Enjoyable to learn about your Linux use case and experience

It was enjoyable listen to your Linux experience! I went over to Linux as my daily driver in Dec 2023, Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE). We have different use cases, but nevertheless interesting to learn some about your needs and experience.
