  1. I've been debating the same thing, Grandad.  My ol' laptop is still running Mint 14.  It's only got 2 Gigs of memory so I don't know how well it'll run all the new stuff.  I remember having a 386 with a whopping 4Mb's of RAM.  The cranky and craggy aul' 112MB hard drive did not like to wake up in the morning.  I'd litterraly have to kick it to get the drive spinning.  Those were the good ol' days.  With all that kicking, I never lost any data.  🙂

    • You might be a person who gets nostalgic for vintage cars going back to the 1950s and 60s. The Ford Zephyr and the Austin 7 pleased their owners on the Irish roads sixty years or more ago. A good kickstart often worked wonders on early misty mornings.

    • You're bragging now, JD.  My first one only had 1 Mb of RAM [I think] but it did have a massive 40Mb hard disk. 

      I don't think there would be any problems running Mint 17 on 2 Gigs?  You could always tweak your Swappiness?  [That sounds kinda kinky?!!]
