I was not suggesting that my request was the cause of any bug in your

More on topic, many people have reported a lagging cursor on Ubuntu Studio
starting with version 17.04. That was the case on my AMD Athlon II X2 270
system making it unusable, while 18.10 works perfectly on my Intel i3
system. However LinuxMint Mate 19 based on Ubuntu 18.10 works perfectly on
both my AMD and Intel i3 systems. Hopefully the next Ubuntu Studio release
will work on AMD Athlon II x2 cpus finally again.

My preferred flavour of Ubuntu is Ubuntu Studio because I have never liked
the Unity desktop and because U. Studio contains more of the apps I use in
its initial installation. I was hoping that developers of Ubuntu Studio
would consider supporting networked zero clients, Ubuntu already has the
DisplayLink drivers so the missing piece is the USB network server. Brazil
needs 800,000 zero client workstations. Their current multiseat OS provider
is Userful and their hardware vendor is ThinNetworks. Both are charging
license fees and dropping multi-seat support in favour of, in the case of
Userful, the digital signage market. Wouldn't it be nice to see 800,000
workstations in Brazil public schools and state universities using Ubuntu
