@popey - I'm really appreciating the stability and polish of 19.10, but these 3 similar icons and ambiguous truncated titles are driving me nuts. To whom do I address the strongly-worded letter?
Okay. A member of your family WhatsApp group chat starts spreading word of a malware issue that has been proven to be a hoax being regurgitated after 2 years. Do you correct him with a Snopes link or do you just stay mum and avoid being 'that guy'. It warns of a phone-bricking hack - but simply isn't true and there's no malicious scammy link or anything. No harm no foul and just keep my trap shut? What say you?

Pulled the trigger on a Lenovo p53. Hopefully arrives in a week. Now to figure out what distro to install... Stick with Linux Mint (what I've run for several years) or try something new. Apparently the touchpad, wifi and brightness controls likely require a 19.10 Ubuntu variant or making sure whatever I pick gets updated to a 5.3 kernel (yes apparently hardware support hurdles are still a thing).
Was also eyeing an expensive MSI laptop... but I would rather buy something that comes with Linux and Win10 is the add on rather than vice versa.
