Do not forget altogether this is still Ubuntu, which shows how a good outcome demands a solid foundation.

Just a note to say that my 32bit-UEFI only Lenovo 100s (see here (https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/index.php?topic=2611.msg44393#msg44393) for the saga) is now running 4.6 without undue trauma.  Thanks team!

Thank you, team Linux Lite! I run your distro on most of my Lenovo Thinkpads (e.g mostly x131e models) and it has always been working just fine for me.

Good job and thanks again. Greetings from Scandinavia.
