    I did some editing for clarity but... yeah, jargon is unavoidable and might as well be greek if you haven’t the background. Sorry.

    Sorry for the poke with a sharp stick...just couldn't resist, beside it coincides with my view of the complexity of Linux...

    Install was quicker and easier than Windows 10, but there’s an unavoidable learning curve for those accustomed to Windows, just as there is when switching to MacOS or that some Win7 folks encountered with Win8 and could never overcome :vbrolleyes:.

    Anyway, enough off topic chat. After I get “home” I’ll post a topic in the Lenovo section of my experiences with Linux on ThinkPads. Things might not go so smoothly on my X1 Tablet since unlike the X1E it’s not certified by Lenovo for Linux. We’ll see.

    Uh well.. I found a bug. Rearranging my apps, iOS 14 just got rid of something like 6 of my app folders, and dumped all the corresponding apps alphabetically across four pages, helpfully followed by the app library. What the actual F :eek:

    Edit: looks like I'm not alone. What an annoying f****** bug. Serves me right for not waiting..

    No, the blame is 100% on Apple for releasing a flawed feature update that isn’t labeled “beta”. There’s no excuse for this kind of thing, regardless of whether it’s iOS, Windows, or whatever. People rely on their devices too much for sloppy sabotage to be allowed.

    At least Apple doesn’t force the updates like a certain other OS maker. But leaving it up to the average user to guess & take chances is unethical.

    Bought a 3rd gen iPad pro... just in time for iOS 14. Updated, restored from backup... noticed no difference and carried on from where I left off on the iPad mini 5. Yay.

    FYI, I braved the 14.0.1 iOS and iPadOS updates a couple days ago. No problems detected on either my iPhone SE (2016) or iPad mini 5. Knock on wood.

    The "generation" thing with Apple drives me nuts, especially in the used market, where some refer to 3rd Gen as 2019, others (like mine) 2018, and I think technically it may span two product years. Anyway, knock on wood, both iPad Pro 2018 and iPhone 11 Pro survived the leap...that includes 14.0.1...
