    I listened to the podcast and thought I would try Peppermint 9. I burned it to a disk and it booted fine. It has Microsoft Online for some of the office programs but I would use Open Office should I install it. It ran smoothly on the I7 at work. I’m keeping the disk I burned as I would use this in place of Ubuntu 18.XX. Thanks for the mention of this distro…

    One update, I also downloaded the Mint 19 and burned a DVD of it. Mint 19 booted fine but I liked the Peppermint 9 enough that I am replacing the Ubuntu 18 on my dual boot test machine. The Peppermint 9 has promise enough that if my Windows 10 machine needs reinstall, I will make the entire machine a Linux box and kiss Windows 10 good bye.
