Hello, I was hoping to be a Linux Mint user before I made a post. Didn't work out that way. I don't have unlimited internet so order the 64-bit Cinnamon disk from One-disk.com. The disk arrived today and when I started to check it out found out it has a bubble in the disk. So I'll have to wait until next week when I can hopefully get something done about it.
I have used RedHat, Slackware, and Gentoo in the past so I am familiar with Linux. I have just been so busy with work and school that I have not had time to put a Linux distribution on this laptop since I got it a couple of years ago.
