Re: Same old story

16.04 is the obvious way to go...but it has stupid systemd-related problems that are still not fixed "out of the box" a year on. Such as:

NTP failing because ntpdate is taking longer https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/ntp/+bug/1577596

Shut-down/reboot scripts hanging for ~1m30 https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/systemd/+bug/1594658

Stuff added in /etc/modules being ignored because its in a blacklist (e.g. watchdog drivers) which is fscking stupid - blacklisting is supposed to only apply to auto-detected modules. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/systemd/+bug/1535840
