Re: Still using Linux Mint 14, 15, or 16? Upgrade to 17 asap

I just installed Mint17 on a Biostar NM70I-1037U MB with a SSD. By far the smoothest install that I have ever had. I tried Cinnamon and so far, it works very well. Very happy!

Anyone know where I can download a driver for an AOpen M64-AGP video card? Yes! The box is that old.
