Hi from England...

Post by Scaleyback_65 » Wed Jan 30, 2019 6:09 pm

Hi, another new Linux Mint user here, but I'm not new to Linux. My main laptop is currently running Manjaro XFCE, which I really like, but I've just bought a dinky Lenovo X240 and thought I'd try installing Mint XFCE on it ( It won't install on my HP Pavilion gaming for some reason, it doesn't even work as a live distro on USB ). Fortunately the install went without a hitch and I can see why Mint is popular, it's very noob friendly. I like the fact that Manjaro is a rolling release and cutting edge but I also like that Mint is very full featured and probably less risky than Manjaro, so I should always have a working laptop when I need one. Anyway, I'm not an Arch blowhard, just an average user enjoying Linux whatever the flavour, so here I am :)

Hi, to be fair everything has just worked with Manjaro so far, but I'm just doing a kernel update with Mint, so I'll let you know :)
