Is this cuttlefish really all that cosmic? Ubuntu 18.10 arrives with extra spit, polish, 4.18 kernel

With that said, anybody who maintains personal uptimes[0] just for the sake of bragging probably deserves what they get.

After 18 years of not using Windows, occasionally noticing my uptime is more than a week or two still gives me a little thrill.

I still find it a pain having to reboot everytime a kernel or Graphics driver update (get your shit togetther, Nvidia) forces me to. SystemD promised quicker reboots, but I'm not seeing them, every time, some errant process takes nearly 2 minutes to close, and UEFI insists on polling every single external drive looking for something to boot , despite boot order settings.
