It looks like the purging of spam accounts is ever ongoing..
Obviously the picture doesn't show "dramatic" drops, but it's the biggest in a while.
* Setting the scale for menus and tool bars to 0.875 looks awful.
* Uninstalling software via the new Software Center will uninstall fine, but only temporarily removes the icon in the list, before then "refreshing" and bringing said icon (plus any others uninstalled) back into the list. Trying to uninstall again generates an error, because it has uninstalled. Only rebooting (not exiting/reopening the SC) will fix the list.
* Installing software through the SC (like a Chrome deb, teamviewer, whatever) will do nothing on the first click of install, and generate a "?" icon in the dock which won't go away until reboot (or killing the PID) on the 2nd click, never installing the deb either way. I resorted to installing the deb(s) over command line.
* The installation of lxd and ZFS went as smooth as butter, and I'm running a few test containers on the laptop with a ZFS backend with no issues.
* 16.04 feels faster than both 15.10 and Elementary OS on the same hardware
* Similarly running commands like apt(-get) update seem faster and output a lot less on the CLI.
Normally I'll fresh install where possible as upgrades historically haven't been a guaranteed success on my systems, however with the VMs I had higher hopes because:
1. They're basically vanilla installations with one or two services running per VM.
2. They all have fresh snapshots (thankfully).
I've upgraded a web server (apache, nothing else) and an apt-mirror server (again, nothing else on there) - which I wrote about a short while back - without any trouble at all, possibly even faster than previous upgrades I've tried also which may or may not be a 16.04 feature.
Unfortunately my LXD host ran through the upgrade with little fuss, then failed to come back up, persistently booting to a B(lack)SoD through various attempts to bring it back to life.*
And that's where I stopped today. I'll likely come back to it next week to see how others will fare.
* It did eventually come back after rolling the kernel back to 4.2 but I'm not satisfied with that, so I've restored the snapshot and I'll likely build a fresh 16.04 system (container) for a new LXD host on a ZFS backend (currently using the filesystem which is least-optimised for speed and resilience).
With the sometimes daily notifications of updates I figured it'd be a good idea to setup a local update server rather than polling the nearest mirror.
I had the choice of either an apt mirror, or an apt cache; the former being a mirrored copy of the nearest ubuntu mirror and the latter only caching updates when they're requested by clients.
I should have probably, and will soon likely go with the latter after expanding the disk yet again to accommodate Xenial.
