    Full moon, distro resting: A long, fairly positive review of Xubuntu 15.10 Wily Werewolf 64-bit edition with the Xfce desktop, tested in a multi-boot Windows/Linux environment on a laptop with UEFI, Secure Boot and GPT, covering live session, installation, and post-install use, including Wireless, Bluetooth with mixed results, Samba sharing and printing, smartphone connectivity and associated bugs - iPhone and Ubuntu Phone, touchpad setup, multimedia - HD video and MP3 but no Flash, partitioning and slideshow, package management, updates, language support, default and extra applications, hardware support, webcam, stability, suspend & resume, resource usage, battery life, customization, and more. Have fun.

    I just went through one of your reviews and thought of asking for a test of scaling abilities across Linux desktop environments and resolutions; 2k, 2.5k (x1440, the sweet spot in desktop monitors, but you can reproduce it in that laptop), 4k
    hope you find the time.

    So, from your review it seems 15.04 is still better.
    Was crashing the most disappointing problem?
    My bad I upgraded without waiting..

    Joxx, that's a production system, so I won't be doing any games there.
    And I believe 15.04 is better - better stability, hardware/peripheral support and battery life.
