Re: Cinnamon Mint so far...

Some of your issues are due to software vendors not supplying a Linux version. Some is due to people writing for Windows only - I suspect many games suffer from this. Hardware issues with Linux seem backwards with newer peripherals not always working while older devices working flawlessly. The Linux device driver model is apparently unchanged so once a good driver is available it will always work.

Sometimes I have found peripheral vendors will supply a Linux driver but you may need to hunt it done. Once I found Epsom drivers on their European site but they were never mentioned on their US site. For a Brother printer, I just went their US site and found it. Once I knew the filename I found it in the Arch repositories and installed from their.
