Re: Checking it out under Linux is a good idea.

Much as Ubuntu irked me wiith the Amazon search thing (that I didn't like Unity was a trivial matter easily fixed by installing a different desktop), that was a far, far lesser transgression than those of MS with Win10, and one thing I've always liked about Ubuntu is that their installation process, right from their very first mass release, has always been a joy. As is Mint's of course, but as has been pointed out elsewhere, Ubuntu's using a later kernel than Mint is currently, so I'm not sure why any one would have voted you down unless it was sheer knee-jerk reaction on their part. Ubuntu IS more bleeding-edge than Mint, so it's not surprising if Mint trips up on new hardware more than Ubuntu does.
