Maybe I misunderstood the original post as well, I thought this was a check list of things done in MS Windows which they can now do in Linux Mint, thus the "check". FYI, as far as I know (AFAIK), these can all easily be done in Linux Mint; gaming requires the hardware to run them, obviously.Instigator wrote:what i do with windows..
league of legends check
world of tanks check
ms paint check
movies check - Numerous Linux programs can easily do this: SMplayer (MPV), VLC, Totem, Kodi(xbmc), etc...
chrome/tor check - You can install Google's Chrome browser on 64-bit, the new excellent "Opera" browser is Chrome Based and can run Chromes extensions & works well on 32 or 64 bit computers, and Tor Browser Bundle works well on all editions.
