Yes! I did it!

Post by Amii_Leigh » Mon Mar 25, 2019 10:08 pm

I finally bit the bullet and installed Linux Mint Mate 18.3 on my ancient and decrepit computer.
And you know what?
IT WORKS GREAT!
Thanks to all of you that help to make a truly great product!
Cinnamon always seemed kind of slow, but with Mate, everything is just peachy!

Cool !!! And I agree, Mate is best ;)
Now replace the hard drive on your "ancient and decrepit" computer with an SSD drive and you'll think you have a brand new computer.

Hey - - well done.

there is always an occasional Laptop that seems to wind up, on my desk,
& I've found that in most cases, the machine can indeed be revived by the Installation of an New System.
