    I got the grub2 update in Ubuntu 20.04. Does that mean I am SAFE?

    The ubuntu website also mentions it has been patched.

    Good to know.

        Now if only they would tick a few boxes in the kernel to make it low latency

                Still running on 10.0RC with a local clone of the 10.0RC repository and a custom-build 5.1 kernel.

                  Not quite - you see, there is a few myths is our blissful penguin world that tend to stick around - some of which are...

                  1) systemd is monolithic
                  2) Btrfs corrupts your data
                  3) There are no Linux viruses
                  4) 32bit is just as efficient as 64bit (x86) if you don't need the extra memory
                  5) Debian is outdated
                  6) Programs that are not updated will rot and get worse over time
                  7) old GUI designs are inefficient and needs to be replaced every second year
                  8) XFS never truncates your files
                  9) linux filesystems don't need defragmentation
                  10) some filesystems never fail so you don't need backups
                  11) you definitively don't need backups if you use mdraid
                  12) GNOME is useful
                  13) The kernel never crashes
                  14) only xterm -bg black -fg green has the power of starting a decent thermonuclear war

                  You obviously are a disciple of myth#5, good luck as a missionary for that... Oh and just in case you ever should be a bit curious if there is any substance to what you so uncritically probably believe in I suggest you check out the following URL:

                    You forgot: 15) No need to reboot after updates
