I call this computer Frankenstein, because it had been cobbled together from parts from other computers. I’ve decided to ditch the Windows OS and install Linux Mint (http://linuxmint.com/). I plan to try this system out for a while and I may use this OS long term.
I had a little hiccup just as the install was finishing. It crashed. However, everything seems to be fine and I’ve only had a few minor issues; lag a couple of times, update failures a couple of times, and I had a window stick. Having said that, the problem may be my internet connection rather than a Mint problem. Basically everything is doing as expected.
I had a lot of updates, and I made sure that I got them installed, followed by a reboot. I’m adding some software so Frankenstein will be tested — lmao. My test video worked and I was both pleased and relieved.
Day one has been a success — let’s see how Mint holds up.
