Ubuntu was my first outing with Linux.
There again, sluggishness was a "fun" thing too (especially when compared to some installations i saw elsewhere - albeit desktops, but computers that were quite a few years older than mine yet now behaving much faster than mine).
What teed me off again in Ubuntu (and still does) was the more recent side panel.
Auto-hide is nice but i prefer the free Linux way of deciding where i want it.
I suppose that's besides the point right?
Yesterday, just to make sure i didn't do something wrong the first time,
i downloaded and tried to install LM13 Cinnamon.
Well, after an hour at tinkering through the partitioning and so forth,
it still wouldn't finish installing. It's not that i had problems at following the procedure,
it was because of the extremely slow speed of the windows coming around.
Usually with any Linux installation process, i'm done in about 20 minutes (reboot included).
There you go. Another LinuxMint product that doesn't like my computer.
Needless to say, i cleared it off and went back to Windows 7 only (for now i suppose).https://www.dropbox.com/s/7j0l0odzn07vq ... 20Info.jpg
