Re: Mint is great

"Why are you booting your machines so often that boot times are important?"

Because I'm not using my computer twenty four hours a day, and 'sleep' is too unreliable under linux*, so I turn my machine off when I'm not using it.

As the saying goes, uptime is a measure of how long since you last tested that your machine could successfully boot.

*(and that's using Mint 17.3 on an Intel NUC, hardly an uncommon or unsupported configuration).
