Iv been problems. Yesterday i was downloading something from the internet and it froze completely, my lights on my keyboard just flashed ect. I rebooted and went back to firefox and it crashed again because the file stated to download again. So another reboot and by now im pissed. I spent hours on this problem with ubuntu and hoped mint would be a bit different, but not. I believe iv narrowed it down to the wireless driver. here is s post on it in ubuntu. http://ph.ubuntuforums.com/showthread.php?t=765510 - 12 pages and a million more other posts about this problem! i hope maybe a developer of mint could be a huge help and try and solve this issue. Ubuntu doesn't help anyone at all!
