    I have a i7 desktop with the full blown Mint and a few other distros but am on an old XP laptop now, 2 gigs of memory max. I'm using Mint LXCE and Firefox 54. It runs pretty good for an old machine. Even runs KODI.

    Next quad+ I get will be Ryzen.

    I've had it all, except that. The newer Intel stuff is bunk.

    Post Ivy Bridge it craps out for no reason. That is unacceptable.

    This OS is teh awesome though. Fedora 25 LXDE. Hardened kernel, built from barebones. Don't remember root pw. :rolleyes:

    This is a Pentium chip! The desktop runs really great though, I have 16 gigs on that one. I can open all I want.

    Figured I'd switch to Ubuntu MATE but had some problems with it specifically when I minimized a package I had open it would disappear and I couldn't find it also VLC wouldn't run half my DVDs even though I installed all the restricted extras so yesterday I installed Mint 18 Cinnamon, so far not only does everything work right out of the box it boots faster and runs smoother, the only issue I have with it is the panel opacity control doesn't exist, a minor annoyance.

    This can´t be satisfying. All that shit doesn´t work.

    Note that Ryzen only supports Windows 10. Certain features will only work in Windows 10 and you won´t get updates when using Windows 7. Same for latest Intel CPUs.

    If Ryzen doesn't work with xp, I won't even buy it.

    What's the real skinny on it? You know what?, I know the qualified people to ask that, it's probably not you.
