What is everyone using?
#39
(08-23-2019, 06:34 AM)John Swisher Wrote: Not running Linux yet (waiting on SSD to be delivered). The hardware that will be used is:
Lenovo B570 Laptop
CPU: Intel Pentium B950 2.1 GHz (Sandy Bridge)
Mem: Corsair DDR3L 1600 Mhz 8GB (2x4)
GPU: Intel HD Graphics
HDD: 240 Gb Crucial BX500

     Will be a fresh install of either Linux Mint (Cinnamon) or Ubuntu 18.04 (gnome or Mate). Used Suse and Red Hat back in the '90s before I got drawn to the dark side by Windows.  Looking to get back to Open Source.

Update:
SSD arrived. Setup the laptop with Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS. Everything is running smoothly except that it will not shut off automatically. Thanks to others on the forum I do have a workaround.  Once I use this for a while I will transfer to a desktop.
LinuxMint 19.2 (Cinnamon)
Lenovo B570
Intel Pentium B950
circa 2009
