Piggy backing off an earlier rant about Linux. Let's talk about time wasted fixing Linux.

One time for me was I couldn't get Ubuntu to boot. Whenever it booted through UEFI it would go straight to the EFI bash like command line boot screen, not allowing me to access Ubuntu.

I tried for almost a full day to fix it, Googling solutions, resetting my BIOS and fixing Boot using a Ubuntu Live USB.

In the end I found it was an issue with setting my filesystem as XFS. I reinstalled using EXT4 and it booted right up. Must've been some sort of bug. Strange because XFS boot worked with Fedora. A day wasted trying to set up Ubuntu.

    Yeah one piece of sand on the beach of those stories :) but it's amazing and not every over the top boasting guy is going to the core of the stuff like that . It's worth just for saying to me I did that, even when everyone around donnnnnnt know how much of a pain was that and what even happened
