Been running Fedora this way for about 3 years now.

Where is nvme0n1p3... an 'extended' partition holding p4?

It appears to be swap.

Well...I am none the wiser, as to why this rotten thing was so slow with the partitions I put there.
Correction: I do know.

That is why. How I managed to allocate such a 'tight' space there, I have no clue

Lesson learned.

Thank you, @Alexzee and @dos2unix for prompting me.

The gparted now looks like this:

You would think that after all the screwing around I have done with Linux over the last 6/7 years, I would know better. Obviously not.

But....I am learning !...Constantly!

For now, the system is running like a dream. Super fast. Super reliable.

As are we all, I hope. I know I am.

The list of Linux things I don't know is probably longer than the list of Linux things I do know - and I've been at it for a reasonably long time.
