Linux Mint to go DIY for multimedia

Re: UI changes

If I install a user desktop, after install, all my hardware had better work, or there is something very wrong and indicates to me laziness and not caring. This is another one of so many reasons Linux will never make it as the predominant desktop OS and is relegated to a minority of users.

My W10 install didn't work due to incompatibility with my video adapter, a fairly recent ATI based card made by ASUS. I attempted to discover if my spare was compatible, but MS appears to no longer make an HCL available. Apparently you are now expected to purchase and install video adapters in order to use a compatibility tool. It occurred to me that this might be a very expensive proposition. Yes, MS are lazy and incompetent!

I don't need to run an OS merely because it's run by the majority of users. I do need an OS that works with my hardware.
