I've been running Linux Mint for about 3 years as a dual boot on my older computer (with Windows XP) and am in the proces of switching to LMDE exclusively. Changed to LMDE over a year ago.
My Question: What is the "Recovery Mode" on the boot screen and when and how, when ,and if should I use it?
I've never really had any serious problems with LMDE and have been running it for well over a year. Only real problems are trying to get two of my Windows XP programs to run, but LMDE otherwise has never given me any trouble.
