I guess there will be quite a lot "average experience user" (like me) that would welcome that. Atm im just running a kernel (4.14.13) only with table isolation ...

Intel processors with a security bug

For the people using chrome or chromium, make sure updating them to the latest version (63.0.3239.108 at the moment) and then activa...
