Hello, I am Just an old (now retired) computer software techo from the 60s/70s obviously trying to rediscover my 'geek DNA' as I have just downloaded and installed Linux Mint to create a dual booting Acer notebook. So good so far, I am (re)learning some things and discovering new tricks too, but still appear to have a few configuration issues to knock over ... and terminology has really changed these days too!
Still I am looking forward to using Mint and having some fun on the journey.
Cheers to all Mint users especially those in Oz.
....UPDATE ... first lesson is to check notebook hardware against the release notes. My ATI Radeon HD4570 card is not now producing HDMI sound when connected to the TV ... release notes basically say proprietary drivers are now obsolete but whatever open source driver is in Linux does not seem to work. Sounds OK on TV in that other operating system.
