    Welcome to the forums, luke486

    There are others here who are far better at helping you with your dual boot question, so I will leave the technical aspects to them.

  12. Re: FAT32 file system install with Ubuntu 20.04

    You may be looking at the EFI partition, which does have to be FAT. However, all other partitions would not be FAT. Depending on how you install, they can be any of EXT4, LVM or ZFS, or a combination...

    [ubuntu] Re: [20.04.2] Change Filesystem Label

    It depends on whether you have mounts defined by filesystem label. Some people do this. I believe that the OS defines mounts with UUID, so if you haven't set up your own mounts or customized those...

    I agree with you up to a point. If we are shopping for a VPN provider, then we may as well choose one headquartered in a privacy‑respecting jurisdiction.
