I have moved around the Linux Distributions trying different additions but, I have always kept close to Mint. One of the first reviews I read said Mint does Ubuntu right and that was and is still true. I like Debian based distros and have used Debian. Why work that hard? Mint has done the work. I like the Gnome desktop and have not found anyone who does Gnome as well as Linux Mint. I keep all my important documents in Google Docs and my bookmarks on the web. Which means a rolling release is not important to me. I also use Pardus. For me Pardus offers the most appealing KDE desktop. Mint Gnome is my favorite. Mint’s approach to being based on Ubuntu has worked for me. I still test every new Ubuntu release. Dozens of new releases are now Ubuntu based.
Ubuntu made Debian friendly and Clem has taken Ubuntu and made it work, every time.
I have three desktops with Nvidia drivers and any problems are Linux problems but, that’s not a deal breaker. It’s a quick and easy fix and Linux is free with security built-in not added on.
I still remember how much time and money it took me to keep windows working. It’s good to see you here and you will enjoy it.
