    I've installed LMC, and passed all my photos, movies and music to Linux SSD, also installed all upgrades, everything is OK. I must say I like it, it's fast as light and it use a less CPU for work then W10. Now to play and investigate more. Thank you guys, especially to Scott for all inputs he provide me, now I'm also a member of Linux family. Dual boot works with no problem.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    Excellent!

    You're welcome (for as much as I did, you really did the hard work!). I'll try to make a list of things that might help you get your feet wet. A few words of caution though. Don't fall to the temptation to mess with GRUB before you get a good handle on things. Recovering from a mistake that you make is much easier if you have access to Grub and the Linux recovery options. apt-get is your friend (Synaptic works too). Be VERY VERY careful if you start adding custom PPA's, and for now, avoid like the plague Nightlies, Edgers, or any constantly updated programs. Try to stick to programs in the Linux Mint / Ubuntu Trusty repositories (the ones your Apt-Get and software center utility list). If you can wait to put nVidia or AMD proprietary drivers in, please do, and keep in mind for nVidia (for sure). The ones reccomended by the distro are certainly the safest, and that the nVidia drivers are generally compiled against a specific kernel version, which means if you update to a newer kernel, your proprietary driver might not load, leaving you in a precarious state the next time you boot (Cinnamon or MATE can go into crash loops because of the video driver). I've got a couple of books that might be worth reading if you can find them, and a few sites that'll help (Ubuntu, Linux Mint, and Arch support forums are your best sources for help).

    As I mentioned, I'll try to squeeze some time in to make you a list of helpful links / tools worth having.

    Enjoy!

    Scott

    I've just installed my Epson L355 Wireless printer/scaner to LMC, with no problem at all, just power on the printer, click add network printer option in linux and it found and install all necessary drivers in matters of minutes.

    Don't worry S. I have no intention to mess with something I still don't understand completely. I've installed all recommended by Mint (Nvidia, Wifi...) drivers with no problem, regarding to additional software, no need any for the moment.

    That right there is one of the things I LOVE about Linux. Printer drivers in Windows tend to come in these humongous packages full of **** you'll never use and that clutter up your system with notifications, and garbage. Linux just prints. LOL

    Default Re: Which Linux?

    All this talk has me seriously thinking about throwing in another SSD for dual boot this weekend.....

    I always had nightmares with Grub dual boots, so I went to using BIOS Boot Override as my dual boot. The biggest issues were always if I needed to make changes, or wanted to remove a drive, etc. Have things improved on that front?

    I'm using Grub dual boot (default), have no issue with (boot to W10 or Mint with no problem), but I really don't know the answer to your question, maybe Scott could tell.

    Always look beyond the limits...

    What do you mean by making changes? The only issue I've ever had is if I tried to install Linux first, then install W10. But beyond that, GRUB just seems to work.

    i sudjest you all stop being hindered with the necessity of dual boot
    it's a great tool to learn and transition, but get a seperate drive for the penguin, it makes it all the better

    just be sure to not kill your MoBo like i did,,that was a upsetting lesson
    learning is good .....understanding is better .....pleas teach with wisdom............................................ ..............calemus

    Default Re: Which Linux?

    I just decided that the two shall never meet. I'm using an older i7-870 for Linux only. It keeps the OS-Squirrels at bay.

    Somebody just gave me a Q6600 chip and board with 16GB of RAM on it and I want to set that up to serve movies & music across my network.
    I know that I can do this with a Windows box, but it eventually messes up and fails to work. (at the worst time possible)
    My library is pretty large (over 700 Movies and 47,000 songs) and that makes for problems with a windows interface.
    I feel that a Linux box will not screw the pooch and will just work.

    I had issues with removing the Linux drive and losing Windows boot - usually a fixboot/fixmbr would get it back, but I had to do complete reinstalls a couple of times. Or changing Linux and the same would happen, or with a version upgrade, etc. And if they were on the same drive.....ugh...though I do recall having a better time of it with EasyBCD, not sure that even works in Win 10. Not even sure it works with Win 7....

    I think I will just stick with using the boot menu to select when i want to go into Linux. Just seems like an easier proposition.
