Chris Were, the Welsh rambler, joins the choir of the reasonable people. Reasonable like Orca! LOL, no. But reasonable like many many very well-adjusted Linux experts. If you can’t wait for him to get to the point, I guess you can just jump in at 5 mins. 😉
Whatev, if you just can’t muster up the chuzpe to switch over to Manjaro, please do yourself a favour and install LMDE instead of the old old mouldy Ubu-based Mint. It won’t make much of a difference in the short run but you’ll notice after a while. 😉 And it’s the future of Linux Mint anyway. Ubuntu as base is becoming unbearable coz of Canonical not even giving two wet farts about the users, about you!
