  1. I am running Mint 19.3 on one on my machines and I must say it is quite zippy on this older Sony Vaio laptop. I installed it today on the desktop I use in my work space downstairs. It definitely feels zippier than it did running Arco linux.
  2. No linux version? What gives?
  3. Hi Packratt, If you're new to linux it is a good idea to have a second computer to try it on. If you are on a desktop, install linux on a second drive. Natively, linux does not run the familiar .exe files we all know from Windows. Many programs have been ported to linux, or you can use alternative programs that do run natively in linux. I have to leave for work now but there are many YouTube videos on this subject. Linux Mint or Zorin OS are just two of the easier linux OS's that help make the transition a little less cumbersome.
  4. Hi Charlie, Have you tried the most recent release of Mint (19.3, Tricia). It is beautiful as well as functional. Driver Manager picks up on proprietary hardware and installs the correct drivers without a hitch. At least this has been my experience. With the hybrid system I have it can sometimes be a royal pain in the toosh, but Mint does a seemless job of it.
  5. @Charlie Hi Charlie, I've run linux Mint in the past and currently have a friend and two family members using it. They all love it. None of them ever used linux in the past and found it to be very intuitive. Have you tried MX linux? It has many useful tools such as the ability to create a bootable usb of your system. You can install the system, set it up the way you like, then create a bootable usb of it just the way you like it. Very Cool! I've only spent a short time with Zorin 15 so I may give it another try. Myself, my current distro's of choice are Manjaro KDE Plasma and openSUSE Tumbleweed KDE Plasma I do have a tendency to hop because of my curiosity. I'm typing this in Peppermint 10. I downloaded it yesterday morning before going to work and starting playing with it late last night. I find Peppermint to be newbie friendly as well.
  6. How about Linux Mint? Also targeted toward new linux users and similar to Windows in its workflow.
  7. I never played that well. Holy!
