Spent the day with the family. Just enjoyed being home this weekend.
Tonight I took my desktop all apart, cleaned it out and swapped the SSD drives around so that I could get Linux Mint installed on my desktop. I am excited.
The install went well and really took hardly any time. Linux Mint 13 went on without any problem and worked great. All of the peripherals “just worked” and all I had to do was run the general system update to get everything “just perfect.” I only had a couple pieces of software to modify to get working as I wanted them. Really Pidgin for my IM is about the only thing that required setting up at all. Very impressive system and so responsive, I can’t believe how nice it is to use. I am very happy already that I made the switch. I can’t wait until I get used to using it and really efficient with Mint. This is going to make my life a lot easier.
