The only real use for it would be the sleep, hibernate, suspend features which I don't use anyways, so again, why have it when I don't have them.
Last time I used them there wasn't much of an issue. As I posted earlier in this thread, I used to have similar hanging issues but after an update it was all fixed and it stopped being a problem. So merely trying Mint isn't going to be the end all be all of the argument. You'll need to use multiple distributions with multiple version of both the network sharing protocol, and other variables such as kernel to get a really good sample size.
And a LiveCD? Yeah, that'll go over really well.Edited by Shrak - 3/20/14 at 3:13pm
