Well, after installing Ubuntu a couple of weeks ago, my experience of it has been nothing short of a nightmare, subsequently, I have decided to give Linux Mint a try.
I do however have a few questions with relation to hardware compatibility.
- After installing Ubuntu, it took rather a long time, and the help of a friend in order to get the integrated WiFi card on this system actually working, the card in question is manufactured by Atheros, but from what I can gather, Linux support for Atheros cards is somewhat thin on the ground? It would be nice to know if, by a stroke of lucky my card will work 'out of the box', or if there is a 'quick fix' of sorts.
- Is there a quick and easy way to leave my files on this system, but get rid of Ubuntu completely upon installing Linux Mint? I suppose my only option would be to leave Ubuntu on this system temporarily, transfer the files to Mint, and then somehow delete Ubuntu?
Thank you in advance for your assistance.
