"Ubuntu for me was meant to provide a more stable platform than Windows.
Since this freezing has begun, it's been anything but that. In fact, it's
made Windows look rock solid!

Sadly, I'm switching back to Windows until this gets sorted. I'm fed up with
spending hours trawling the web to find solutions to a problem which seems
to be affecting so many people, but to which no permanent fix looks like
being released for now."
