Mint is as reliable as a wood burning stove and that is what I want on my computer.

You returned inxi -s which is pretty much useless in this context - use a capital -S with inxi -S

Re: Nerdy types dismissing Linux Mint.

I can't look past your use of "nerdy types" slang to apparently belittle and ridicule enthusiasts sharing an opinion opposite yours. Something must have got lost in the translation because the expression 'nerdy types' does not convey notions of either belittlement or ridicule, nor does it convey or...

Mint is also for people who just want a working system without having to fiddle around after installation.
Nonsense. If that were true then these forums wouldn't be full of posts asking for assistance.

I "believe" that if your silly enough to encrypt your drive during install, then inxi -Fxz does indeed show/include the /boot partition in it's output.
Or it could be as simple as actually having a separate boot partition.
