Alright thank you.

My Hardware(for reference):

Intel Core i5 2320


Nvidia 750 TI(1st Gen Maxwell arch)

To keep this simple and easy to read, I'm going to report the two bugs 
that I think are “critical” and need to be fixed ASAP. Not entirely sure 
on some package names, so I just put a question mark(?). I have about a 
handful of other bugs that I've found, but didn't want to make this too 

*Bug 1: Grub vanishes*

*Package*: Grub

*Details:* Grub will disappear randomly after installing updates. The 
disappearance doesn't seem to be triggered by any update in 
particular(that I know of anyway, it could very well be). It can happen 
at any point after installing updates.

*Resolution if encountered*: Use the Ubuntu Startup Repair tool to 
reinstall Grub. Decline any future Grub updates(is this safe to do?). 
You should then be able to boot back into Ubuntu(and any of its flavors, 
see below).

*Other Noteworthy:* This also happens in Ubuntu(unity) and on versions 
14.04.X, 14.10, 15.04, and 15.10.

*Bug 2: Corrupt Text*

*Package*: nouveau(?)

*Details*: When using the Open Source display drivers(with my GPU, see 
above), text is corrupt, unreadable, and shifts when you move the mouse 
pointer over it(can sometimes turn white too depending on where your 
mouse pointer is). This also affects the LIVE installer environment.

*Resolution if encountered*: Switch to the proprietary display 
driver(not really a fix, especially in LIVE mode).

Again, these are the more (smaller) bugs but i didn't want to make the 
message any longer.

Thanks for the QA offer, will definitely check it out.

P.S. Please forgive me for any mistakes when replying to the mailing 
list. Still a little new to this.
