  Gateway (AMD PHENOM(TM) 9500 Quad-Core Processor X 4)
  Mint (older version)
  Works perfectly
What works:

Been testing several different Linux OS flavors, and found Linux Mint 14 and Linux Mint 15 to be the best.
Have installed on at least 4 different old funky PCs and Laptops.
Mint got them up and running - simply amazing.
This is actually the tower PC for everyone to use, it got hit by a major Win-Vista virus yesterday and I finally had enough.
Backed up everything I could that wasn't already backed up (we do regular backups) and then did the install early today.
Finally, with some of the old junk PCs, the wireless card etc wouldn't work. Tried the suggestions for Win-Drivers etc to no avail.
So, I simply bought another Netgear Wi-Fi booster and hard wired then to that. Didn't realy need to since we hard wire most things in our office anyway. Just wanted to find a way to have the laptop wireless for the fun of it. Get it?
Thanks so much Linux Mint 15 - will post more on our blog.

What doesn't work:

Everything works fine so far.

What was done to make it work:

Everything works fine so far.
Needed to import email from the default Win-Mail software.
So, started Thunderbird and imported the *.eml files into it.
No problem at all.
Remember, we always do backups.
The emails from the backups came right into Thuderbird.

Additional notes:

Keep up the good work. As soon as we get paid from a few big projects we're working on, we dill definitely donate money.
Oh yeah, we tell everyone about Linux Mint.
Great job, thanks!
