    Yeah, but did you know that there's loads of free games from the Software Package Installer. :D:D:D:D

    But yeah, I don't often use it on Linux, only on MS W7 for Elite Dangerous, etc.

    I will do some researching on LM17.2 to see if I can run Elite Dangerous on LM17.2, perhaps under Windows Virtualization environment?

    Anyone done it yet, you Mint users out there? :confused:

    Currently jumping through flavours of Ubuntu on my laptop. Want to take the plunge and try Arch but never have the time to sit down and configure the thing.

    Server side most are debian with some running Ubuntu.

    ... so it seems Ubuntu, + Ubuntu derivatives, + Mint all together make up about 2/3 rds. That's a pretty big share.

    I started out on Ubuntu and in recent years have used Mint as I just cannot get on with unity.

    Using Ubuntu 17 at work and 16 server at home, can't complain so far since switching from windows!

    Discalimer: Have dual boot windows for some games that don't run on Linux
