Rearden the Newb

Post by Rearden » Sat Jan 20, 2018 9:54 pm

I have been interested in linux mint for about a decade. But everytime I tried it in the past something wouldn't work. Usually sound but occasionally graphics drivers. I would mess with the live USB for a while and give up since Im not a very patient individual.
I have been playing with mint 18.3 with cinnamon for a few weeks on a couple of my machines and it doesn't have those flaws anymore. Currently running a dual boot with windows 7 and hope to figure out how to run everything i want on mint so i can ditch 7.
