Re: 18.3 XFCE is so rock solid

I've been using Mint 19 Cinnamon for over a week now and it is not that buggy at all. I'm at the point where I don't see any difference between it and my rock solid 18.3 Cinnamon.

Re: Bad performance

I would try 18.3 Xfce on that machine. You may try Peppermint also. I found it to be faster on my mini-laptop

Re: Whats everyone currently listening to?

Just mowed the yard and set my iPOD on some old Triumph Triumph is one of my favorite bands, along with Rush and Yes. They have a similar sound. You and I would get alone just fine.

Re: Linux Mint 19 codenamed “Tara”

Re: Excited for 19.x

I installed 19 on my external drive and it was running great until I upgraded my Nivida card driver. Blank screen now :wink: Oh well, back to the drawing board.
