error that is not a defination of a solution, more a work around.The potential for a processing bottle neck still remains for any new user!. I have a relatively fast computer .Type a letter 'b' into the search box of the software manager, and it freezers for x amount of minutes(unless that is you know the untick the correct box "solution"). That is not how a modern computer system, on half decent hardware should respond i.m.o .
Surely! the system should be designed so one program can't take up all the processing power, thus enabel the entire system unusable for X amount of time ?.
My first impression of Linux mint is that it's got great potential.But ,at times , it feels like a operating system that has been patched together, rather than a fully functuional system that you can trust to simply 'work out of the box' .I'm sure it will get there evetually
.Indeed it's not that far off, if only these little issues could be ironed out, so newbies coming from windows won't be put off .
