  3. Hi Wes,
  5. I took note of you mentioning a possible root on ZFS setup for your new laptop, and I would definitely recommend giving this a shot. I don't know what distro you plan on using but in the past few years I've been using nothing but root on ZFS on Arch, with binary updates from archzfs, and have had a flawless experience. I love having essentially free snapshots on a recurring basis, basically keeping me Version Control for my entire system.
  7. I also wasn't happy with Linux not having a properly supported boot environment client, so I wrote my own - zedenv It removes the worry of a kernel update, or system change causing issues since you can create a new boot environment and make your new changes there. If you happen to give root on ZFS a shot, and are looking for a boot environment client, please take a look at it.
  9. Best of luck with your new computer!
