Thanks for the reply . . . I will try that "analyze" command . . . I did a
similar thing with my U-MATE  20.10 install that was also very slow to boot
up . . . there were so many problems with that install version that I wound
up nuking that one and went to straight Debian Bullseye and that isn't
totally super-quick to boot because of the system check that ubuntu seems
to do . . . .  A fair comparison will be Mint, Debian, and Lubuntu . . .
not sure if the same command will work with TW & Manjaro, but I'll check
them over the next week as I log into them.

But, on the "I must be doing something wrong" argument . . . box stock
20.10 system upgraded from 20.04 . . . regular updates maintained,
regularly . . . .  Maybe I'll change etc/apt/sources to "hippo" and see if
that speeds the show up . . . .  The only thing I'm not upgrading in ubuntu
is grub2 . . . because of the problems that it causes to multi-boot setups
. . . ho-hum.
