Intel's Core i7 5775C Broadwell Is Running Well On Ubuntu 15.10

The Intel Linux graphics driver is still at OpenGL 3.3 compliance for all recent generations of hardware, but at least they're very close to hitting OpenGL 4.1 support and their driver should be there before the year is through. These results don't illustrate any real performance changes in the past few months between Fedora 22 and Ubuntu 15.10, but at least now Ubuntu Linux is running stable on this Core i7 5775C + MSI Z97-G45 GAMING system compared to the stability issues I encountered with Ubuntu 15.04.
