    Hi all.
    I can't believe the Elementary devs can't quite get some things sorted release after release.I have tried every version of Elementary to date and it never seems to amaze me how some simple things can't get sorted out.Another release that touchpad scrolling is really terrible,basically non existent until synaptics input driver replacing libinput.Now pages can scroll freely and fast and smooth which should be available right off the bat.Bluetooth always turns on after every boot even though it is turned off,why can't a simple thing like turning bluetooth off work.Every time you boot up you have to turn bluetooth off,hey devs not everyone want's it on,I am EMR sensitive and can't have it on and this alone is basically a deal breaker for me because every install I need to kill bluetooth from the terminal which should not be necessary.There are more issues straight off the bat from a fresh install that should not be issues and it makes this distro a bit tricky for newcombers to Linux when this distro could be one of the better one's.I like it's simplicity in general design and the way the interface works and is my favorite Linux user interface but hey devs some things need a bit more thought so things just work out of the box.Not sure at the moment if I will go back to OpenSuse or stay here for a while.My thoughts anyway.

    Did you try Linux Mint already? They have the best developers who makes the distro stable in any thing.

    Thanks and yes I have used Mint a few times over the years and really like it but even on my quite powerful Dell xps laptop always find it a bit of a heavy distro,especially when multi tasking.Might be worth another look,it has a couple of years since I have used it.

    Message to Elementary devs.PLEASE get this bluetooth issue sorted.I have changed bluetooth on to false via gedit which works on a fresh boot but after sleep bluetooth turns back on every time.What is the use of having a choice to turn bluetooth off when it just turns itself back on all the time,this is a totally ridiculous If anyone knows a fix for this please chime in or else this distro sadly is not for me yet after another try until the devs sort these little but important things out.
