    Long time no distro! But the hunting season has officially begun! Let's find that perfect distro. We kick of with a long, thorough review of Ubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf 64-bit edition tested in a multi-boot setup on a Lenovo G50-70 laptop with UEFI, Secure Boot and GPT, covering live session, install and day-to-day use, including look & feel, networking - Wireless, Bluetooth, Samba sharing and printing, new installer wizard and cosmetic changes, Dash usage and online search, package management & updates, multimedia playback - HD video, MP3, Flash, applications, webcam, smartphone compatibility - Ubuntu Phone and iPhone, stability, suspend & resume, performance, responsiveness, resource usage, battery life, numerous problems, hangs and crashes related to networking, updates, and peripheral connectivity, other bugs and issues, and more. Enjoy.

    Thanks for the review. Yes I also experienced a few hiccups at the very beginning after upgrade, but everything works fine thereafter. Yes the speed is a lot better than previous builds.
