    Re: Upgrade to 20.04

    Thanks everybody..............maybe I shouldn't be in too much of a rush.
    I have 20.04 on a USB drive so I could do a fresh install.
    Is that easy to do on a duel boot machine?

    Is 18.04 giving you issues?

    Perhaps they want to better fix the black screen that a huge number of people are experiencing post-1st boot? I know they did some work on getting nvidia drivers automatically installed during installation, but perhaps there are more edge cases than we knew which fail?

    Or perhaps an nVidia lawyer contacted them with some demands.

    Perhaps.
    It used to be that a license agreement must be shown prior to the actual installation of the (freeware) proprietary Nvidia drivers. So, it could be argued that distros providing an automatic installation process (Mint, Manjaro, etc.) where doing so illegally.

    Ubuntu as well by not showing the license when installing them but since that was an user action independent from the OS installation the blame could theoretically be shifted to the end-users.
