Re: Farewell Linux I hardly knew ye.....

I got lucky, I found myself in possession of two computers. So, the new one remains Windows 10 and the older one( about a year old) is Linux Mint Cinnamon 19.3. I love Linux and it has a sweet home with a 1TB Drive.

Re: Update Recommended Memory to 4 GB RAM

I'm running Linux Mint 19 Cinnamon on an Asus A53U, 1.6 GHZ. Radeon graphics, 4GB Ram, 300GB drive(not SSD) and it runs great. Cinnamon is snappier and the overall feeling is fast.

Re: LINUX BACK TO WINDOWS???

I'll be honest, I dual boot with Windows 8.1. It's ok as I have to use it for work related programs. But my aim is to use Linux exclusively. I'm using Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon right now with plans to upgrade to LM17 when it becomes available. My experience so far is very positive.
