A question requested multiple answers to problems upgrading to Ubuntu 16.04, "Please list your experiences". Since my experience was not represented, I added an answer of medium quality. Since then, it has been edited. This is fine. However, the editor removed several key pieces of information:
- The version of Ubuntu that worked despite the wrong "Secure Boot" mode.
- The fact that I'm using proprietary NVidia drivers, which are specifically what did not work after the upgrade.
- The actual change that fixed it. (They said I disabled Secure Boot; I actually changed it from "Windows" mode to "Other")
The keywords they removed are essentially the keywords I had been searching hours earlier, to no avail; removing them makes the answer much less useful, at least to people like me.
I'm going to edit their edit, keeping the formatting improvements, but making the answer relevant again. Am I right to do this? Or am I being a bad citizen in some way?
