Well said/written. I remember this rant from a guy that had some (video?) editing software on doing some encoding or something. When he came back to the computer a couple of hours later the computer had restarted because of updates and the encoding had been interrupted.... Plot twist, he didn't have automatic updates on, he had just been telling Windows to update at a later point time after time.

I have been happily running Ubuntu for a while now. My wife has a 5 year old Macbook Pro. It fails on boot. We tried resetting PRAM, and booting to root. I can get a root prompt, but no more than that. Since it's 5 years old, she was thinking of replacing it. However! I tend to run old hardware and hand-me-downs. Is there a fairly straight forward guide to creating an Ubuntu boot drive I could boot a Macbook Pro from? Guides for a bootable USB image where pretty tough to follow. So - say I am running 14.04LTS. I want to create a USB boot drive of Ubuntu 16.04, and I want the Macbook to be able to boot up from it. Any pointers or tutorials?

Has anyone here encountered this issue? There are answers already for 12.04 and older which I'm sure will apply but I'm astounded this issue can exist given Ubuntu is so popular on the server. Do admins only run servers that they sleep beside? :)

Honestly, now I don't remember if it's even using grub on my server. It might be booting via EFI without grub, but I've not plugged a display into it in so long, I can't really remember.

+Aman Arya​ based on your link, I'd say the issue was that on initial installation swap was on one disk, then after upgrade (can't confirm from information provided) the UUID changed (and disk was reidentified from sdd to sda).

And if you're using systemd, you can also
run:  systemd-analyze critical-chain  and  systemd-analyze blame to see what is slow during start up.

How are people still using Windows??? After 14 hours of updating (not exaggerating) the fucking update fails??? And I can't upgrade to 10 because they're "rolling out" the upgrades???

On Ubuntu a full upgrade from one version to the next takes, if you're unlucky, a couple of minutes, and daily updates take less than a minute, and they never force your computer to shut down while you're in the middle of something.

Every time I am forced to use Windows it reminds me of why I'm using Ubuntu...

Just upgraded my Ubuntu 15.10 install to 16.04. It took ~20 minutes and that's including the download. The guys at work sit there cursing at their Windows 10 PC's. I have zero experience with W10, 8 or 7 :) The first year of using XP was hell, hence the switch. I feel for you +Simon Hyll.

Thanks to this little gadget and my Logitech Keys-To-Go keyboard I worked for several hours on my M10 this afternoon. It was great being able to move to work beside the whiteboard and take my Excel, Word and PDF files with me. And took photos of whiteboard notes to add to Evernote (Notes app).

Really enjoyed it. (My one niggle is having to copy files onto the internal drive to open them - being able to open straight from the USB would be fantastic).

Yup, still loving my M10! :)
