I can't help but get away from arch it seems...
Started running it on my laptop where I always have windows as a backup.
Ended up migrating my media pc to it.
Then when our old xp w/512mb ram laptop needed to be... usuable I threw it on that.
Run it on my raspberry pi too, lol... though I may switch that to something with official GPIO repos if I can't get a couple minor issues straightened. Unfortunately arm/pi/GPIO seems to be better supported/documented for the Debian based distros.
edit: http://www.raspberrypi.org/forums/viewt ... 44&t=35321
:( kernel thing apparently... Guess if I am going to make anything serious I either have to check default state or figure out loading the module on boot.

I just recently picked up an used HP quad core cheap so I installed Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon on it cause I wanted to check out linux again. I have thought about partitioning it some and installing Ubuntu 14.04 to check that one out as well.

Laptop (Asus) with Mint 17.
Desktop (Zoostorm) with Ubuntu 14.04.
Laptop (Fujitsu) with Xubuntu 14.04
Laptop (Toshiba) with Kubuntu 13.10 - the latter two crap so rarely used. (Crap laptops, not OS)

Haha -- Very interesting.

i'm using a LMDE with my own custom kernel compiled. On top of that I have the Debian Sid Distro added to get the newest dependencies for the nVidia 340 driver. I just did a dist-upgrade to this setup - Will see what happens a little later today.
So far everything works very well!

All distros are their current versions....

Mint Cinnamon - main desktop: general use, gaming, digital art creation
Mint Cinnamon - fiance's main desktop: general use, gaming
MacPup (Puppy w/E17) - ancient ThinkPad X23 laptop
SolydX - very old Sony Vaio laptop
RaspBMC - Raspberry Pi
Plus various ever-changing distros in VirtualBox for testing and distro-hopping pleasure. None currently installed yet, since I upgraded to Mint 17.

:oops: ...and a sad little secondary HD in my main desktop with Win7 on it. Spends most of it's time unused because it's buggy as all hell. It's original purpose was for any games or programs that wouldn't run in Linux when I first made the switch from WinXP. But it has proven itself too borked out of the box to actually be usable, so there is very little actually on it. It's the last Windows I will ever own, for many reasons.

So there ya have it. The OS setup within my household. :)
Intel i7-3770k 3.5GHz, 16GB 1600MHz RAM, 2x 1TB HDD, MSI Z77A-G45 Thunderbolt motherboard, (MSI) Nvidia GeForce GTX770, Mint 17 64-bit w/Cinnamon.

I am a n00b! Please assume zero knowledge on my part. Sorry for any dumb questions, I am still learning.

Of all my computers, I have 2 computers that are fully dedicated linux machines, one running LMDE and is my set top box laptop (laptop has broken backlight inverter board.) The other, an old acer aspire one ZG5 netbook, still sporting a version of Fedora (out of date because of power cord breaking) From there I have a Toshiba laptop that I have a dual boot setup using an external drive specifically for it with Linux mint Cinnamon (I got away from mate after seeing some of the features to Cinnamon) and the boot loader installed to that drive. without it, it boots to an Windows 7 Home Premium, which I keep for work related purposes. I also have 3 Raspberry pi's, two model B and one model B+. One of the B's is being used as a Home server with FTP access and DLNA abilities. It for the most part runs headless but I keep it hooked to an ancient CRT for those times that I want to mess with it directly. The other B has a 32 gb sd card and I've been working on using RetroPie with it (I think it's a modified arch that auto boots to a emulation station sort of thing. correct me if I am wrong) as for the B+, I'm lacking a micro SD to use with it at this time so it sits dormant.

If you guys count Android I have an Asus TF300T and a Motorola Droid 4

My other computer is Windows based for playing games only (mostly disk based, but a little bit of steam here and there as much as I despise it.) and My Wife used to be a Linux User but switched back to Windows after losing two computers to build quality. (What does she expect, she buys Dell.)
Main systems:
Toshiba t135D: AMD Turion Neo x2 1.6 ghz, 4 GB DDR2 RAM, ATI Radeon HD 3200 (mobility version), Windows 7, Linux Mint customized dual boot with external drive
Custom Desktop: Gigabyte F2A88XN, AMD A10 6800K, 8GB DDR3 RAM

As even Non-Linuxes are allowed in this thread: None except my Android phone. :mrgreen:

One of my webspaces runs CentOS though, but I don't have root rights there, so probably that doesn't even matter.
Linux is not the only answer! :: eD2k/Kad mirrors for Linux Mint and LMDE.
Users who misspell "Windows" as "Windoze" intentionally will be considered stupid.

Linux Mint 13 (Maya)*
Distro Astro 1.0.2 (Ceres)*
...early releases of Fedora Core, Mandrake, SUSE & Xubuntu (...and sometimes FreeBSD or Syllable) on an
old Compaq laptop.**
...and trying to install Yellow Dog 6.x (PPC) on my iBook G4





* these distro's multi-boot alongside MS-Windows Vista (business edition). :oops:
** a dual-boot with FreeDOS 1.x & MS-Windows 3.x (how sad is this!) :oops:

There's nothing wrong with Mint 13.... It's supported until May, 2017. For certain old hardware, Mint 13 is even the only option. :)

I have an old athlon 64x2 that works only with Mint13 (I've tried 17 and even other distros).
Linux everywhere. Active Distros in my many computers: LM17.3 (Cinnamon, Xfce); LM18.1 (Cinnamon,Xfce); LMDE 2 (Mate), MXLinux (Xfce), Debian 9 (Xfce).

Debian Sid is my main OS. I'm also running Arch.

I looked at FreeBSD a while back, and I might try it again. And yes, I know it's not Linux, but just thought I'd mention it here too.
