New to Linux
I have recently shifted to Linux from Windows 7. I installed Linux Mint 13, set it up and it seemed great until one day I ran mintupdate, rebooted, and voila, gnome 3 or cinnamon menus/panels/icons all just vanished. I tried LinuxMint forums, until now I have not recieved any help, strange for such a common distro.
Nevertheless, I decided to move on and try another distro - not because I think Mint is not worth it, but just for the sake of learning, however, I'd prefer a stable one. I did run into quite a few problems with Mint throughout (Cinnamon seems a little buggy).
I was wondering what could have gone wrong in the first place during the update?
Also, is it possible to run openSUSE with 1GB RAM?
Any guide on which distro I should try?
PS: I forgot to mention that I ran Gnome 3 shell and cinnamon on the same machine and it ran quite well with the said amount of RAM
