Went over to Kubuntu 20.04 LTS. These cutting edge rolling releases seem too buggy, at least for me. Not running on hardware right now - I may go back later - but dual booting is a PITA.Despite my earlier comments about Debian and usability, after Ajay casually mentioned switching to Debian I thought I'd give it another try.
One significant reason IMO not to go for Ubuntu derivatives this days is the snap packaging for apps. I simply cannot believe that Chromium when run natively on my PC off an SSD is slower to start than Chromium installed in a Debian VM on my machine when the VM is being hosted on a 5400RPM hard drive. The mind freaking boggles. And no, it has nothing to do with my Chromium setup, it's always been this slow.
Another reason why I'm thinking of switching to Debian is because MTP has suddenly stopped working on my Kubuntu install.
