Tina is beautiful

Post by bmaring » Sun Aug 04, 2019 12:42 pm

I have been a linux user for over 15 years now. Been through Fedora, kubuntu, ubuntu. Recently brought up Mint 19.1 as virtual machine and fell in love with it. Mint is now my host OS. Upgrade to Tina was flawless and very easy. Upgraded Virtualbox and kernel to the latest levels with no problems. Great job with Tina. I am done looking for alternatives.

I am thoroughly happy with 19.2 XFCE and I have already donated again.

Great to hear of another happy Mint user.

I've been toying with the idea of upgrading to 19.2 Tina but don't know if it's worth the risk of losing some (or all) of the tweaks and settings I currently have in my Linux Mint 19.01. For instance I'm worried about what will happen to a couple of Windows programs I have running in Wine, and what will happen to my installed Steam games. Will I lose my Timeshift configuration settings, my Bluetooth headphone setup (which I finally got working flawlessly in 19.1. My video card drivers, and other important stuff I'd hate to lose?

It took me a long time to get my system working the way I like so is the upgrade to 19.2 worthwhile? Does the advantage of having 19.2 justify the risk of upgrading?

The same here. I was a bit apprehensive because upgrading to Mate 1.22 from a PPA proved to be an unsatisfactory experience but so far (knock on wood) my fears were all in vain.

KUDOS to the team, nicely done! Image

My Acer Aspire One netbook AOA 150 is right on the RAM borderline with 1.5 GB so I’m going to stick with 19.1 XFCE. The machine came out of the box 10+ years ago with XP installed. XP could run with 64 mb and was swimming in RAM with a paltry 128 mb. Hard for any modern operating system including Linux to compete with those streamlined system requirements. The modestly endowed Atom N270 processor was nothing to brag about 10 years ago when the netbook was new.
LM 19.1 XFCE should get us to 2023. Like my favourite old beetle bug of the 70s I’ll have to park the little netbook sometime.
