Fedora came up I switched to Fedora. I use always two systems Windows and Fedora quasi
paralell. This means if in a function Windows is better Windows, if Fedora is better
Fedora. Partly I had 2 disks in the system one for Windows, one for Fedora. But since I
work with laptops I use Fedora on USB connected media, currently Fedora on a 64GB usb 3.0
connected flash medium. Fedora is in this configuration -as I feel- quite quick, as it
would be on the internal disk. As mass storage I use the laptop internal Windows disk. I
saw that data transfering from the Laptop internal disk to an external disk and vice versa
is much more quicker, when it's controlled from Fedora on usb flash medium, then it
is, when controlled from the laptop internal disk, there are many examples where fedora is
comparable ( or better) as the Apps of Windows.

OK but what is the bug ID?

In general, yes, permanent installs to removable media just aren't
really a priority for development or testing. I've had your bug open
for a couple of weeks, intending to test it out locally if I get a
chance, but there's just always been something more important. I'll
still try and get to it.
Yeah, it'd be neat to find a way to recruit people who individually
are interested in solving a problem, but have only narrow expertise. A
way to put together a team. Something like a dating app for developers
and projects, haha.
