Long term Linux user. Started as a professional back in 1996. Now I am retired. I've used many distro of Linux but I have now become a complete and committed LinuxMint 18 user.
I have been running a desktop and old laptop on LinuxMint 18 using the MATE desktop. It literally is incredible in function and performance. In fact LM18 is faster than the LM17 version I was running. Now I have a platform that will be supported for six years!!! How wonderfful!
