Thank you for this.  But...  The excellent talk at the BLUG meeting 
last Thursday was about the "Meltdown" and "Spectre" problems with 
[mostly] Intel chips and how various OS providers (M$, BSD, Linux, 
etc) are working to come up with software solutions.

I guess I'm one of M$'s test sites - Win10 boot times are now about 30 
minutes with system lockups requiring cold booting...  No BSOD warnings.

So I'll have to wait to fiddle with the native ubuntu on Win10...
