hi , i tried linux before ,coming from win7, but it didnt work quit so well.i tried mint19.1 32bit cinnamon,then i tried mint 19.1 64bit xfce,then tried mint 18.3 32bit xfce. all of the above gave me troubles ,it downloads fine and work ok ,only problems i had i just couldn't get movies to play right on any player i tried(videos lagging and sound/vid out of sync).on win7 never had a problem.also my laptop got hotter as before when using win7. i really liked the look and feel of linux ,but installed windows again cause of these issues. what i'd like to find out is what distro would work on my older laptop,here are some specs: proline model w258cu , intel atom cpu D2500 @ 1.86GHz , ram 2gig , not sure what bit it is cause i had win7 32 bit on before now i have win10 lite 64bit on ,which is slowish. the issue with movies not playing correctly i don't think has to do with graphics card,cause it played just fine on win7. also why is pc getting so hot on linux? so if someone could please advise me which distro should work better for me ,i'd be thankful (Log in to hide this advertisement) thanks guys !
