Follow Up On the Elementary OS Challenge

Follow up on the Jason Evangelho post


I was reminded *why* you ALWAYS use a "test" computer for experimentation.

NEVER EVER use your regular/daily computer for "trying stuff out".

I thought, ya, what the heck, I'll drop Elementary OS 5 on my experimental machine and see what the hype is all about.


I forgot, anything based on 'buntu 18.04 is a turd for those of us that multi-boot. 

I don't know why, but, when you install anything based on 'buntu 18.04, the GRUB menu is completely toast and you LOSE ALL YOUR OTHER OS's!!!

That is one thing in an old legacy-style bios computer; it can be fixed. But, do this on an EFI-style computer, well, my test machine is still messed up!

I'm going to pull a rabbit out of my hat, throw it down the rabbit hole, and see what I can do...
