understand what you're saying there, and it is definitely worth a try, however, why would it be crashing at random points in time if it is a problem with dependencies. it loads up perfectly fine, and sometimes will work for a decent period of time (very rarely), but it almost always crashes at some point, even when i have not given any user input to change anything. is discord trying to do something in the background? if it is, why does it sometimes work for a good amount of time, and sometimes not Į\_(ツ)_/
It may only be crashing when it makes a specific call to that resource/dependency or another program steals a specific resource/dependency it needs.

The Appimage is probably your safest and easiest thing to try but ultimately I'd point the finger at Discord.

Just out of curiosity and laziness, I have both my desktop and laptop set to dual-boot into Windows and Mint Cinnamon, but generally use Windows.

In your opinion, which recent release of Mint is most superior for the casual user? I keep my Linux directories lean and clean, and could upgrade with minimum drama (aka trauma).
The most recent tends to always be the recommendation.
Mint is pretty consistent with user experience and interface, I didn't spend a lot of time in Mint 20 (just long enough to check that) but it all seemed the same. It's Mint (and Linux), nothing changes very quickly.

One thing I will recommend though is if/when you move more into Linux as your primary system is to get off Mint.
I love Mint, it's FANTASTIC for new Linux users but long term it's got a massive Achilles heel and that is updating to new versions. The upgrade from 16 to 17 was the last time it went remotely smooth for me on any system I've worked on and pretty much always required a re-install, I think it was 18-19 that even flubbed a fresh Virtualbox install upgrade I did as a test. I just don't get it, I know of no other distro that consistently screws this up, which is all the more unacceptable considering Mint is the distro of choice for people coming from Windows and that Linux makes it so darn easy to backup and move your data. Most people who left ended up on an Arch based distro which doesn't use distro version updates.

pretty much always required a re-install,


For now, I don't keep anything of value in the core Mint ecosystem for long. Generally I have various internal and external hard drives where everything important goes, and so any new OS installation goes onto a new hard drive bought fresh for the project. These days hard drives are cheap enough that springing for a new one for the OS every 2-3 years seems like a no-brainer.

i had the same experience with OpenSuse leap, keeping the /home in a separate partition helps a lot with not losing much though, and having switched to tumbleweed that problem is pretty much existent (rolling release, should never need to upgrade but i get huge updates everyday)

I'm still on Mint Xfce for most of what I do and it's by far the best distro and one of the best operating systems I've ever used. It's super fast, stable, and seems to just work with my hardware and software.

I still do use Windows 10 for certain software, though.

We'd sort of standardised on CentOS (mostly for servers) at work and home, but since the debacle with CentOS 8 we've switched back to Ubuntu.

Ubuntu is also more similar to Raspbian on my Raspberry Pis, so it's all good.
"Because keyboards are accessories to PC makers, they focus on minimizing the manufacturing costs. But thatís incorrect. Itís in HHKBís slogan, but when Americaís cowboys were in the middle of a trip and their horse died, they would leave the horse there. But even if they were in the middle of a desert, they would take their saddle with them. The horse was a consumable good, but the saddle was an interface that their bodies had gotten used to. In the same vein, PCs are consumable goods, while keyboards are important interfaces." - Eiiti Wada

I use Arch  :cool:. No particular reason other than the fairly minimal install (which immediately dies once I'm through with it)

I use Arch with gnome on my thinkpad and MX linux on my desktop Xfce. After alot of distro hopping I do like MX linux the best.

do anyone ever tried to run an LTO drive on linux? i have trouble with MT, when i try to get the status of it i get activity on the wrong port on my HBA (HBA being an HP P800 and the LTO drive an HP Ultrium 448 on port 3 drive 0, i get activity on port 4 that has nothing plugged).
wondering if someone here tried and managed to make something like that work.
