Windows has now been replaced by Linux Mint on both of the family laptops,
I have had literally no problems with the Linux Mint on my Acer Timeline series. Both drivers for ethernet and wlan adapter was preconfigured on install. There has not been any problems with external equipment or installing software.
Both of the laptop is experiencing faster boot ups and general performance increase,and the Linux Mint desktop is really clean and nice for the eyes compared to the newest version of Ubuntu.
I will be testing steam as soon as possible.
If you have an old computer lying around, go linux! It’s fun.
