The first part is definitely a Compiz problem. This strange “ghost window” happened to me for the first time today. Not too long after, Compiz crashed back to Marco… no surprise!
There’s probably a plug-in responsible for that. I had my ups and downs in 15.10 with Compiz before tweaking it to something stable.
I admittedly had a bit of a mixed first impressions with 16.04 – under the hood this thing felt snappier then 15.10, but my problems were because of upstream package changes (
lsb is gone - I can’t install my printer driver! ) and it’s taken me longer to get my installation to my desires.
I agree with the Boutique and that dialog being impractical, I have a plan to change that for 16.10. I did at one point have 20 Apt windows just stacked and let the Boutique do its thing, only
telegram failed. I think the
apt daemon dying was an isolated case in this instance.
That crash of
ubuntu-mate-welcome at the end looked like it was caused by
apt once again.
Thanks for sharing your honest thoughts.
sorry to hear you are having doubts about UM 16.04, simply running a full system update can solve many problems; to which I am sure you are well aware:
