That is my personal preference... but ironically the late 60s was the zenith of the American empire.

Oh please... not that crackpot theory again.

You forget... my brother was an Apollo era NASA scientist who helped build his lab
that analyzed the lunar samples at NASA's Houston Lunar Receiving Lab building.
He even learned how to blow glass to create his own special test tubes. I visited
there several times and witnessed all the strict quarantine equipment and procedures.
My brother worried someone would break quarantine while he was outside and couldn't
get back to his lab.

When he was a teenager he loved to read science-fiction novels.
We lived in Odessa, the heart of Texas oil country. He initially
wanted to be an oil geologist. But there was an oil bust around
the time that NASA was created. So my brother changed direction
and became a NASA scientist. He was blessed to live his dream.
Before he retired he was one of the last Apollo era scientists.

Zharkov reply:

You probably are experienced in Windows installs.   You should actually try installing Mint and see how long it takes you.   

 

I know it takes at least 2 hours just to install Mint and all the updates from the internet, to which you must be connected to when installing the software.   The install is slow even with the fastest internet connection, computer and dvd drive.   The slowness is due to the software installing itself very slowly and carefully, not the internet connection.    The ISO download is usually outdated, so the updates are massive during installation and the installation takes much longer than with Windows.

And after it is installed, you have e-mail to set up, browser links to set up, passwords to enter, a lot of programs you will want to download and install, so 1 day is a very conservative estimate.    It could take much longer.

But it is all worth the trouble, by far.   You get a very stable, fast operating system with the latest browser, flash software, and free programs for all kinds of stuff for video editing, sound editing, word processing, complete office suite, just about everything you could want.   

I use UBUNTU MATE and Mageia on 2 separate ssd

I tried both.   Mageia works ok, but not as fast as Mint in my computer.   It may be a computer-specific issue, or just a bloated OS.

Ubuntu is nice but I never liked having a tool bar on the side of the screen instead of the bottom.

 

I never liked having water and electronics together.  

I would use a peltier cooler instead, if I needed extra cooling.

It does the same job without leaking, although condensation can be a problem if it gets too cold.
