Hello from France!

Post by ladyonthemoon » Thu Sep 08, 2016 2:30 pm

Hi,

I'm new to these forums, not so new to Linux though. I was an Ubuntu user a few years ago and I had to abandon it when I bought my present computer: Ubunu didn't boot. I went back to Windows 7, which is my favourite Windows os; I find it pretty decent, easy to use and elegant. In order to avoid Windows 10, and since support for Wndows 7 will drop in 2020, I'm getting back to Linux and installed Linux Mint 18. I like it so far but I'll have to consider a downgrade due to drivers problems.

I hope you'll bear with me. :)

Welcome aboard, ladyonthemoon! I'm going to guess that you have AMD video and that's the drivers you are talking about? Have a look at this thread:

Thank you but none of the cards correspond to mine. :)

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.
