Hey all, have been doing some career retooling lately and after kicking some things around started a IT Security & Assurance program. Upside: Fun. Downside: Cisco lab courses in flex time is major drinking from the firehose.
Anyway, since I'm headed that way in a semester or two I got a jump start with Linux. Tried a few distros out, but in the end I'm following a sizeable chunk of the flock with Mint. Got most of my stuff set up (Printer was a bitch. Epson and Linux aren't best buds.). Already wondering if I should've set up the bigger partition for the Linux side -- I had to dual boot for various reasons. Since 'wife complaint' was one of the reasons, other reasons are irrelevant.
Any tips for a solid new setup from Linux pros? What are y'all running? I came .........this......... close to going with openSUSE based on its performance off the USB, but ended up with Mint 14 Cinnamon.
