What I advise to do is install mint with the default settings and alter your config afterwards.

Re: Transfering to a new computer

Yep, it should work. I've done it before.
But it will only work if it's the only disk in the system.
With multiple disks it might required to alter the bootloader.
Just give it a try.

Use Thunderbird and the lightning plugin and google calendar :-)
That's the perfect combination.
This allows you to still sync Iphone calendar ,and your computers calender. With gmail as mediator.

It seems xsane is the stuff you want. Although most photgraphers they tend to buy the vuescan commercial package that is a lot better.

Re: What NOT to do? As in keeping my hands away.

What NOT to do : test stuff on your only running system on which you rely daily.

Instead : Install virtualbox ,install a new instance of Linx mint on it , and test your stuff on this virtual instance.
