Hehe at least the prtscr is opening a program that allows instant saving and is making a sound, so I guess my sound is working well. Apart from that linucs is telling me I can install the incredible number of 550 games! AWMAGOWD!!!

550 games is good, but most are typical solitair, gem poppers, or tetris... there are a few that are really good but you will need to install Ubuntu and get those video drivers installed to play em.

Yes, Photoshop may run in Wine, but no guarrantees. Also depends on your version.
I do recommend GIMP. specially 2.8 because the windows work together as one program. In the past releases the menus and toolbars were seperate windows you would have to Alt+Tab through to use them.

Finally you see the light!!!
Pffff.. you don't need any plugins.
Glad its working out for you. I've heard Ubuntu is one of the best distros to use because its widely developed and supported.

I am emailing you from my Mint 13 box with brand new Nvidia drivers! It only took two clicks to Activate the drivers which automatically downloaded and installed!
Score!

Sorry I got left an entire page behind! You boys have been out with the hounds! One Minute I'm the only guy in the forums who actually believes Linux can effortlessly install a Video driver,

( I don't mind, I understood. I was not kidding when I said I uninstalled my drivers three times...just to touch the magic button and watch it do it all again! and again!! This was a long time in coming!)

and now, here I am at the dawn of a new age of Linux Gaming! Well done guys!

So Chris...you had something of a gut reaction...Care to sort out your first impressions?

BTW, Mint is firmly based in ubuntu, but ubuntu is not Mint...particularly not Mint 13 ":O}

I was hoping they would offer alternatives as I'm sure a very good one must exist, ...Danrok might know...?

I searched software manager and Synaptic Manger, got this:

Installed Wine, Dosbox, Chromium and noticed a screenshot of Sketchup in the Wine search results....
Drakensang isn't working yet with plain wine. I'm updating to Java 7 jre to see if that helps... otherwise I'll try Playonlinux.

The Nvidia drivers also support my two LCD monitors!

Lugaru worked good except no sound. I'll try it again tonight because I found that Mint shows two outputs for audio and the default wasn't working.
I bet my secondary is my video card with the HDMI output....
I'm not using it
