A bit random really why I moved over to mint.
Was made redundant so gave laptop back to work a few weeks ago, have fairly old Lenovo R500, 3gb RAM, Dual Core P8400. Vista ran like a dog and also unsupported, which decided to give up on me. Had no media to re-install and would have been an idiot to do so with it unsupported so decided to give Mint a try and so glad I did. I wish I'd given it a try sooner.
AND, I have now found a place where I can finally been use avatar with a Full English Breakfast without the devils food that is mushrooms on and not be judged, my life is now complete
