I decided to wipe my main laptop (ThinkPad T450) and start fresh with a clean install of Ubuntu Focal Fossa (20.04 LTS). Join me as detail why, and wipe out my 2 year old install.

Briefly reminiscing at ~1AM about a Pr1meOS computer I used in 1988. Searched online. Found me, on IRC in 2006 reminiscing at 1AM about it while supporting Ubuntu users. Some things don't change :).
