Today I installed Linux Mint because someone challenged my good sensibility.
Install process was smooth. I was able to play Dark Souls III on Linux for the first time (git gud, scrub). Installed a few tools, KVM, and played with some themes and settings.
Probably gonna stick around for a while!
The installer was basically the same as the Ubuntu installer. After that, I did their “one click install” for the Nvidia drivers. Nvidia 435. Reboot and BOOM, good to go. They allowed for LVM + Encryption during the installation, which I always take advantage of.
Vim, git, Audacity, OBS-Studio, Golang, Node.js, KVM, and CKB-Next. I changed the theme to purple on black (YEET), pinned some applications – All this just to see how good/friendly the UI was. Installed Steam, Dark Souls III, got gud, and kicked some ass. Mounted NTFS drive, used the PS4 controller, and checked some other software.
Really great experience so far.
People always gush over ElementaryOS, POP!_OS, and Ubuntu (which are all great distros), but damn, did I have a hell of an EASY af time installing and using Mint.
UFW and apparmor are available (apparmor is installed out of the box).
Pulls from Bionic repos.
