So that contradicts your earlier statement in this thread:
So, do you garner all your opinions from online articles? I certainly don't. Cut the nitpicking. Your command doesn't work on NVMe, btw.

Re: TRIM doesn't work on NVMe- Inappropriate ioctl

A periodic trim won't do any harm. Just sudo fstrim / on occasion. https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2015/04/ask-ars-my-ssd-does-garbage-collection-so-i-dont-need-trim-right/ From that article: TRIM is never a requirement, but it always helps, and you’re always better off with it than without it. So?

Could someone please explain their understanding of why dropping 32 entirely is beneficial (Aside from bloat)?
It's outlived its useful life. 32bit CPUs haven't been made for years. It's gone the way of the dinosaur and floppy disks.

Re: Start Button icon list?

Right clicking in that area does nothing. For cinnamon, you can configure the top part. Select an application in the menu then add to...

The error message tells you why. "Unable to locate package" means the package can't be found, it's not available, it's old and out of date.
