gnomad Tech: New Linux Claims Old Hardware Drivers (15) RE: Tech: New Linux Claims Old Hardware Drivers 01 Apr 13


I haven't used Mint for a couple of years now, but my experience with it was mostly good.

I used the Xfce version for a while, decided I liked the rolling release idea so switched to MintDebian, but found that less pleasing as I couldn't get it to play nicely on my old laptop (see March 25 post) so I tried something else. I forget quite why I followed up some obscure recommendation of Bodhi, perhaps because that is another rolling release, and needs few resources. I liked it enough to have also installed it on another machine in daily use.

If you fancy a go with Linux then Mint is a good place to start with both decent documentation and a decent forum. Have a read of the tutorials, and particularly the userguide which is available in several languages on a link from Mint page for downloads. Of the many allegedly easy ways in for a beginner Mint's installation process is (IMO) one of those best deserving the description. Incidentally that doesn't mean it is some cut-down or kids' version, just a well polished route to a full, grown-up system.
