Is anyone who posts here using this OS?

I've been using Linux Mint 13 for a couple years and it worked fine for me. Few days ago I installed Ubuntu 14.04 to try it out and had some issues with it. For example, after turning on the computer, I would log into the desktop and the computer would freeze then reboot. Also when I put the computer in suspend mode and then try to wake it up, the computer would lock up and not let me log in. I had to hard-restart the computer.

The desktop freezes only happened a few times, and looks to have stopped. The suspend mode freeze up happens EVERY time and still continues.

Mint with the MATE desktop is pretty good for everyday use.

I used Ubuntu for years but the 12.04 version was buggy. I switched to Linux Mint. I love it. I use it on my laptop which has basically become a home theater device.

I also have it installed on an Asus tower at the dive shop. Easy to use and it works great.

I've been using Ubuntu for over 5 years now. I love it. I have Linux Mint on one of my laptops, too. Great OS's! I highly recommend them if you know what you're doing or are willing to learn.
