Linux Mint 13 Maya on my high-end laptop

Filed under
Linux

As I promised, here's the third Mint review this spring. I really like Mint 13 Maya so far, and it's being introduced into my sacred production setup as we speak. In fact, this review is a revolution of a kind, since it marks a first change in my operational system array since CentOS was added there, which too marked another milestone, the previous such drastic step being never.

I am going to show you how Mint Maya behaved on my LG RD510 laptop, which comes with 4GB of RAM and a proper graphics card in the shape of Nvidia 9600M GS. We will also see how Mint runs from an external disk connected to my even mightier i5-powered HP laptop, but that's later. For now, let's elaborate on my recent experience. Of course, you will get all the little details and whatnot.

Follow me.
