  1. I don’t understand why Ubuntu can’t fix the dual screen install / boot problem. People have wasted untold hours wondering why they couldn’t install Ubuntu, only to find out the start screen was on another monitor (output), or their TV. Fedora, RHEL, CentOS know how, wonder why Ubuntu can’t get it together???
