- Had some display issues, and googling around always came across tips for Ubuntu that were not helpful. - Had a similar experience with the WiFi

I do not like that sometimes the environment gets dirty and gives unknown errors and the only way to repair them is by restarting the environment. It can improve the speed of the environment and the integration with different platforms.
