After a very long trial period of trying to get LM13 Cinnamon installed (dual-boot) on Windows7 Home (without success for reasons you may know, namely because of .32bit),
i finally got it to run on an old Dell with Vista on it! Yay!
But, instead of dual-booting i installed the whole disk with LM13.
I did it with the help of LinuxLive USB Creator available at:
Did have to F12 in order to have it run from USB device (not enough RAMs to have it go within Vista).
LinuxLiveUSB did have to modify the installation a bit, but it is operative!
So, from the looks of it, i now have a new computer that outperforms Vista 100 miles/hour! Yay!!!
Thank you Clem !
And thank you LinuxLiveUSB !
For some reason Opera Next (12 - 1450) works better (faster and less quirks) than Firefox and Thunderbird.
From past experiences this is something new (i always like Opera but couldn't figure out why it was generally slower than the above mentioned).
