Within three years from now, support for Windows 7 will be dropped by Microsoft. It doesn't mean that Windows 7 will no longer be worth using but security issues will plague it in time. Since I cannot stand Windows 10, I've decided to switch to Linux. This thread is about Linux distributions, not Windows 10; please remember this. I've installed Linux Mint 18 Sarah Cinnamon; it installed well but I cannot boot it other than by using the recovery mode; apparently, there is a compatibility problem between the distribution and my hardware, especially the graphics drivers. I cannot install Ubuntu for the same reasons, so I'm opened to any suggestions. Thank you! My hardware: CPU: Quad core AMD A10-5750M APU with Radeon HD Graphics, Graphics card 1: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Richland [Radeon HD 8650G], Graphics card 2: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Wimbledon XT [Radeon HD 7970M].
Hello; Tiger is back. Right now I'm trying to get my Steam version of Morrowind to run via Wine, but there's a problem. Namely, all the fonts are missing from the .ini file. Does anyone know where they should go? I'll post the contents of the current file here.

So, I've heard things both good and bad about Linux. To set the record straight, I'd like to talk to someone who's used it in the past (any version at all). Recently I've started to realize just how unfriendly Windows Seven is. (I mean, trying to seize control of my programs? Putting them in random locations, so I have to go digging for them? Not cool, Microsoft.) I also read that Windows 8 is 'xenophobic' in that it gives non-MS programs a hard time, so I don't want to make the "upgrade" to that system. I have a bushel of games, most of which aren't published by the big guys. That said, if anyone has experience with Windows 8 that suggests otherwise, do let me know. Last of all, I'm concerned about compatibility. Supposedly, most Windows programs can't be made to run on Linux systems. True?
