    yeah, I have a win laptop, but lately have been too mobile and too busy to use the laptop most of the time.

    I got a Dell Optiplex 755 used off Ebay, with XP Pro already installed....probably that special sort of install for business, as I never had to fool with calling M$ to validate/activate. Took it to local PC shop to have them 'sanitize' it of any nasties, but none found. Had them switch out the CD-ROM for a DVD burner, up the RAM to 8GB, and install a mobile rack in the spare 5.25 slot. I'm slowly working on a custom-build, but everything on this one is still working. The inboard video buffers movies a lot, but otherwise this is an okay used PC for $122.

    I tried Linux Mint about four months after MX Linux, but was already spoiled. MX Linux is just easier to use, find what is needed, and figure out how to make it work. Linux Mint does connect to the internet 'automagically' (only MX Linux and TAILS so far can claim the same). One would think that would be top priority for any/all Linux distros, but one would be wrong. I tried out around twenty distros, and all require one to fool with 'internet connection'...way to NOT score a M$ expat!
