Mint 19.3 Disappointment - [SOLVED]
« on: January 14, 2020, 09:13:50 am »
I recently upgraded to Mint 19.2 then 19.3 from Mint 17 and I am really disappointed with it, especially the newer 19.3. Boot up is ok, 40 seconds but during a session it always gets progressively slower - I'm really fed up with the sight of the never ending whirlygig when loading up a new window or at the beginning and during a video. I replaced the HDD with an SSD, with a fresh installation of M19.3, hoping that would help also I have done the recommended tweaks for a new installation. M17 ran like a Swiss watch, I really miss it and regret this 'upgrade'.

Can someone recommend something better than this ponderous o/s, back to M18 perhaps? It reminds me of the bad old days of Microdaft on dial up!

(HP Probook 455G2 8Mb 960Mb SSD)
