Well, don't forget, I'm migrating 10 machines (three of the 13 are raspberry Pi's and started out as Linux boxes).

I expected a few issues. Linux is has a different way of looking at things (again, expected).

0) The Kodi problem appears to be a "kodi problem" which does not translate to a "linux problem". It might even be a file server problem (see next list item), since the server completely froze up (it's weird that it would do that, but the hardware is kind of old - it could be flaky RAM and/or CPU.

1) The most recent file server problem appears to be a hardware/firmware problem, as opposed to a Linux problem (I ordered a motherboard with eight sata ports to address most of that issue, and it also supports a nVME PCIe SSD for booting, so that will leave me with one free sata port after all of the drives are connected (I'll have a dvd-ROM, six data drives, and I'll move my boot partition to the nVME drive).

2) Hmmm, got an index out of range exception on this item, but as you can see below, that's not the case.

3) I think my Thunderbird issue was self-inflicted, but it's working now.

4) I'm having an issue with VirtualBox (a VirtualBox problem) in that I can't get the Win7 guest to see the max resolution for the monitor. Interestingly, I created a Lubuntu guest, and it seems to detect the max resolution just fine and with no mechanations on my part.

Honestly, you can't migrate to a new OS without expecting some tribulations. All you can really do is barge through te front door, armed to the teeth and guns blazing, and hope for the best. Word to the wise, I would toss a couple of flash-bangs through the window before breaching the house. A disoriented Linux is a more docile Linux.

BTW, it's okay to be a little afraid...
