Blaine Clark:
Around 11 days ago, I was trying LMDE 4 (Linux Mint Debian Edition 4) on a DVD through the Live Mode. The Beta had just been released. My wife decided to watch over my shoulder and loved what she saw. Without even trying it for herself, she declared she wanted it, NOW! I installed it on her 3-n-1 and she’s been happily toying with it throughout this quarantine. I got back to playing with it on my laptop and decided to install it the next day. We’re very well pleased with it and at this point we can both recommend it for others to at least try.Forgot to add, I’m 64, my wife’s 69 and going to be 70 next month. We is old coots! And when I call her the old lady I’m not joking! Well, not completely! Neither of us are nerds or geeks, just had our fill of Microsoft back in 07 and we’ve been a Linux household ever since.
