    Mint is an excellent choice!

    I tried Mint but probably because of EBCAK I couldn't get the video drivers to work properly. I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 LTS FWIW.

    I started Linux with Dotsch Linux, which was a purpose built distro for Boinc Linux. That was based on Ubuntu, circa like 6.04. Because of that, I've just kept moving forward with Ubuntu. Most of my hosts are 14.04, and I'm just now tweaking things to be happy using 16.04. I agree with others suggesting MiNT as a better Ubuntu.

    I agree. Mint is Ubuntu+.

    From wiki:

    Starting with Linux Mint 6 "Felicia," each release was now completely based on the latest Ubuntu release, built directly from it, and timed for approximately one month after the corresponding Ubuntu release, usually in May or November.
