    High-end workstation/gaming laptop for GNU/Linux

    Hi there @biolinguist, I don't have a ton of experience with other MSI laptops, but my current Mint 19.2 setup is running on an MSI CX61 2QC and I have never experienced any problems loading a linux distro onto it. Drivers for audio, wifi, and networking have almost alwasy been loaded right on...

    Laptop for Linux - Budget $800

    @millardleininger Some people don't like Microsoft's proprietary software and EULA. ;) For what he wants to use this for, I would much prefer a linux distro. Even on my Windows desktop I find myself booting into Ubuntu for website coding just because I like the feel of working on Ubuntu over...

    Antergos rules!

    Sad to see this project ended. I was potentially interested in trying an Arch based distro but am not sure if I'm versed enough to do all the set-up and maintenance. Maybe I'll try out Arch on a VM.

    Getting hardware information from Linux to help forum staff

    Thank you everyone, I think I'll just skip the i-nex installation as I have no real need for it. It seemed like a useful tool to have but if it is no longer supported then I'd rather use individual commands for gathering system information.

    Linux install procedure

    https://itsfoss.com/guide-install-linux-mint-16-dual-boot-windows/ This may help. I myself prefer to use virtual machines to run Linux on my main windows machine, but this may not be practical for you for a variety of reasons. Good luck :D

    @wizardfromoz Thank you Wiz. I thought it was odd that I couldn't find any information on 19.2 on the Mint section, however the search function probably would have helped me find the thread you linked :p Appreciate it!
