A quick switch to Linux Mint

As noted previously I’ve recently switched over to running Linux on all of my personal computers at home. This switch has gone surprisingly well and I will be posting about some of my experiences with that later on. In the meantime just a quick update on the distribution I’m running.

At first I had installed Ubuntu 14.04 because it was the most recent Long Term Support (LTS) release and gave me a good idea of what to expect in terms of software and hardware compatibility. Now that the good folks over at my distribution of choice, Linux Mint, have pushed out their newest release based on Ubuntu 14.04, I have made the jump over to it. There isn’t a whole lot different between the two distributions with the exception of desktop environment (Ubuntu’s Unity vs Linux Mint’s Cinnamon, the later of which I prefer).
