    Here we go: A long, thorough review of Xubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus 64-bit edition, covering live session, installation in a multi-boot (Windows 10 and Linux) setup on a laptop with UEFI, Secure Boot, GPT, and 16 partitions, and post-install use and tweaks, including look & feel, networking - Wireless, Bluetooh, Samba sharing and printing, multimedia support - MP3, HD video, smartphone support - Windows Phone and iPhone, applications, package management & updates, hardware support, stability, responsiveness, performance, resource usage, battery life, suspend & resume, and many, many problems like network freezes, incomplete language support, missing software in the package manager GUI, mouse loss after waking from suspend, Samba authentication issues, Bluetooth pairing woes, Thunar drag & drop niggles, customization, and more. Enjoy. Sort of.
