That must have been Linux Mint 5! I got started with Mint 8 Helena, which I still use today for some things. I do my web banking and browsing exclusively with Mint systems running on Locked USB/SD media on diskless desktop and laptop systems. Welcome back to the family!
Where are you in MD? We have family in Frederick.
Blessings in abundance, all the best, & ENJOY!
