Linux Mint 20 “Ulyana” has arrived! Warpinator (file sharing tool) is fast with single or small files, but is *INCREDIBLY* slow with larger files, e.g. 32 GB file was moving in the 400+- KB/s range with a estimated “finish transfer” rate of over 23 hours!?!? That’s Wi-Fi but hardwire probably isn’t much faster, so I skipped that test. Heck, I put files that size on a temporary data USB transfer drive! Installed to ‘InWin’ and ‘Antec Sr.’ Linux test computers ‘n took less than 3 minutes each – yeah, FAST! Was using 120-128 GB SSD’s and no internet connection.
No pics with the review here…it’s Mint and is based on Ubuntu 20.04 LTS. Seems smooth ‘n easy to work with – from no previous Linux experience to ‘Old Timers’ without a doubt. May be the best Mint version to ever come out…well, at least the Cinnamon edition is. There is also Xfce and Mate editions.
Am going to move it into the #3 spot on Karmi’s Top 10 Linux Distros page, and adding a new category – User ‘n Printer Friendly! Most printer OEM’s have Ubuntu printer drivers (if they support Linux at all), and the Pantum P2500 printer installed fast ‘n easy with the Pantum-Ubuntu-Driver-V1-1-5.tar.gz driver extracted and added.
No option to opt out of ‘Pesky’ Passwords, so it will drop down if I find another Distro (like Fedora SPINS) that does offer an option.
Rule of Thumb – if you can’t install Ubuntu on it, then you can’t install any Linux Distro on it.
