A new beginning for us to have more happy days throughout the new year. My wife informs me we are done for now with work on the winter home here in Florida. Amen!!

This goal is: to learn Xconfig debug commands (to eventually help others too).

My old MintRosa17.3 takes 10+minutes to boot, then Cinnamon crashes.
GUI 'UN-use-ably' SLOW. (.iso install took a whole day! May try 18.1)
