    Have almost similar luck. Do think it has a lot to do with what hardware we luck out to use. Most of mine as been see laptop and install ubuntu on it without googling to see if there are known problems with it. Find that google can find most answers that people already have had before me.

    Ubuntu 20.04 has been problem free here too. Well, my new laptop had an issue but that was kind of expected and a newer kernel fixed it up. In my opinion, 20.04 is the best release so far, very nice work!

    Re: no problems here

    Couple years ago I had the Internet connection just go away without explanation. (Have a lappie and a desktop here so I could research/confirm.) After poking around the forums, different SO posts, and other places trying different things, it magically re-appeared also with no apparent action on my part. Never had a problem since.

    Other than that, none of the recurring nightmares I had running windows. Everything just works.

    Re: no problems here

    I generally don't have problems with Linux as I use old desktop computers and I install and use Linux as it comes OOTB.

    I have seen some computers that Linux just don't like and just won't install and run on and those computers become firearm targets.

    I installed my new home server (+ raspberry pi) just when 20.04 was released. Both have been running rock solid all the time.

    No real problems except that my timeout in grub.cfg is set to 5 seconds (etc/default/grub) but every now and then it goes to 30 seconds, not really work reporting.

    Same with me, although I had to jump through some hoops to get my webcam to work on my Macbook this week.

    Re: no problems here

    The only problem I have had over the years with Ubuntu is this: https://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2329514

    So, I gave the Bose Companion 5's (USB) speakers to my son who had a Windows 7 Gaming Computer, and bought a pair of Harman/Kardon SoundSticks (3.5mm plug) for my computer, and haven't looked back.
