Re: New people need to stop using 18.X and use 17.3.

I think that the original point of warning newbies off using 18.1 is a valid point. The main Mint download pages could make a recommendation for the different type of users. I will add that there is an alternative that worked for me. I am a long term Ubuntu user. Some of my hardware us too long in t...

[SOLVED] Cinnamon crash dual screen how to find error?
