Back to the future
Well, I quit using Linux when XP came out, and last week, after wiping the hdd of an old Acer laptop, I installed Linux Mint for the heck of it.
That machine runs like happy cat! Now I've installed Mint on a newer, not new, Toshiba laptop we were given with Vista on it. Now it looks and runs dreamily! How exciting! I may well install it on THIS older desktop I built about 5 years ago.
Man oh man, the POWER of LINUX!!! :-) :-) :-)
