Thank You.
I have no aliases or anything like that, my machines are relatively simple.

I just wanted to avoid the hassle of reinstalling and reconfiguring everything, and that worked extremely well in the end.

BTW, it's not a "clone", but just an identical setup.
A clone would have been easy (eg, a Timeshift restore).
