    What was your favorite version of Windows (if any)?

    I did start with XP...back then I didn't know any better. I went from XP to 7...never used vista because someone said it was garbage. The funny thing is...everything after 7 was pure garbage...the guy was right.

    How Many Terabytes Has My SSD Written ?

    You get what you pay for, and let the buyer beware. Why is a Samsung SSD 500GB and has a 5 yr warranty yet a Kingston SSD only 480GB and 3 yr warranty. I'm sure the TBW is different around.

    Partitioned hard drive, installed Mint/Cinnamon from USB, and I want to dual boot without the USB

    I don't dual-boot...never have as you could have Grub problems because windoze doesn't like Linux. I have a win 7 VM and have never had problems...Mint Cinnamon runs well in Virtualbox and can adjust video memory to 256MB too. How well it runs all depends on your computer specs...good luck.
