Thank you!

Post by papakanush » Sun Dec 11, 2016 10:10 am

A couple of years ago I brought my wife's Samsung laptop that was on an old M$ Vista back from the dead and running better than new on Linux Mint Cinnamon. Since then, I've given it to my mother and bought a refurbished Dell Latitude E6430 for myself (intel i5 with a SSD) for the express purpose of installing Linux Mint. It's the fastest, most responsive laptop I've ever used. Next came my wife's new ASUS laptop when Windows 10 kept bugging her with advertisements. Replaced that with Mint Cinnamon, and she is very happy with it now. They all run fantastic on Linux Mint. Thank you so much! :D

Welcome to the Mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.
