I’m giving Linux Mint a try after abandoning Ubuntu earlier this year. Toward the end of last year, I recycled an old laptop into an Ubuntu machine to play around with .NET Core and Docker in Linux, and I was very impressed. It had been a long time since I’d last touched Linux, and for the most part everything worked right out of the box.

Hardship began when I tried to use it for virtual school in Fall 2020. It was wildly frustrating to not have feature parity with Linux variants of apps like Zoom while teachers were instructing to do specific actions that weren’t available.
