Forced off 7 due to security concerns HELLO ALL :)

Post by eman92 »

Been on Linux before , way back over 10 years ago , remember fooling around with it , thinking this shit don't work. Well im cheap as you can tell by the computer im using. Same computer , 10 years later , shits working. :) Nott everything ..... just about tho. Enough is. I got the nvidia blues or black screen with steam install but other than that , every thing works. Even my printer , printed a test page. Dont know on scan yet. Proton VPN works beautifully too with MINT 19.3 so for a free VPN there ya go. I use the cheap plan. Still have my windows 7 installation on another drive with my games. My big issue is a common one , not had a chance to read more on it yet. i got to say way to go to the people developing this free OS. Think i will shoot them a few bucks. A little on me , I have set up every version of windows out starting at 98. 95 a hand full of times to get a 98 to work. My experience with DOS is how to format a drive with it on it. Layman computer dude , thats me. Mint 19.3 set right up on my machine no problems and other than the steam application which starts and runs ," i have the black screen in browser window". EVERY THING ELSE I HAVE DONE WORKS. Cool Deal Linux Mint way to go , Im sold , oh that's right its freeeee.

Runs the shit out of this machine , if i could just get my steam on.
