    Thumbs down Thumbs down UBUNTU 16.04.1 + mate-1.14 system

    HARDWARE: AMD8350 / MSI970 Gaming / 16Gig Crucial / 650W antec/ 750+650G Sea / 24" 1600x1200 Dell / EVGA650 / legacy Fujitsu (IBM)/br/Hfon/HP LaJe printer/Epson Scan ......

    Regular use of 16.04.1 (clean install) and comparison with a parallel 14.04.5 legacy installation running beside it shows serious defects in the new UBUNTU 16.04.1 OS. To bullet a few issues from a casual (everyday/exclusive) users perspective :

    1) On-boot crash of USB system(s) ... requiring self-catch and re-boot(?) of those components. Eventually (25 sec) all USB ports work.

    2) Off-site printer driver required ... fagedaboud scanner.

    3) TimeOut screensavr password cannot be rejected

    4) LM_Sensors does not function

    5) hardinfo fails

    Given all that AGRO ... it's fast-as-blazes !

    Suggestion: Use Fedora 24 Workstation or Antergos Arch. You can also use LinuxMint but I find Fedora to be more stable and up to date. My Fedora 24 server is rocking Kernel 4.7.5.

    KRD:

    I bet you have made the superior choice - - Fedora = serious desktop computing. OTOH Cannonical has 90% kissed-off its desktop PC software providing an Ubuntu_16.04 product weak in fundamentals and built for squintsville cell-phones ... such pure BS the "UNITY" concept and execution. NO I DO NOT want a candyman GUI unified with icon-drooling snot-nose 11-yo tweeters ... in fact I want a GUI that pokes-out cell-phone usrs eyes ... and is **inoperable** without my beefy hardware .

    I do have a huge opportunity-cost ( since v6.06 ) invested in Ubuntu and am loath to swallow it excepting the most serious ( ex// M$ eats UBUNTU ) agro.

    Running AMD 8350 & MSI 970 gaming & EVGA650 & Ubuntu 16.04 & 16G Crucial:

    On-boot USB crash ( IO_Page_Fault device 0x:xx. ) "fixed" in UBUNTU FORUMS by adding phrase **iommu = soft** (no stars) to file: /etc/default/grub.

    Line is: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX = "".... pop-the-phrase between quotes. Meaning is obscure.
