After spending a week with Linux Mint, I gave up.
1 - audio would work... sometimes.
2 - OS would hang randomly, sometimes needing a hard reboot to gain control.
3 - Dual install with Windows was so confusing. After I F'd up my Windows partition, I figured I was ALL IN. What a joke.
4 - ...and this was a big one... I couldn't get my scanner to work - Canoscan 9000F Mark II. It's supported, and the OS saw it, it just would install the drivers. EPIC FAIL!
I "try" Linux on every 2 years or so. It still "looks" great, and 90% of it is functional, but for regular, "Joe Schmuck" consumer use, stick with Windows or Mac OS.
I'm getting tired of Microsoft's shenanigans. I wouldn't mind paying $50-$100 bucks for a Linux distro, if it did everything Windows did. I was even prepared to learn GIMP in lue of loosing Photoshop. (I don't use PS all that much anyway).
Oh well, maybe 2018 will be better... #Linux #Windows #scanner #failed #LinuxMint
