Your mind was beyond active!  If she had taken the laptop to a repair shop, they wouldn't have gone to the level you did of first getting her data off the hard drive and then creating the backup.

I sure hope your math is wrong, no way I’m 18 years older  
I joined LS in 2003 and you were already there.

That was definitely a nightmare!  I hope you gave Shari some helpful hints so that she can leave the 1D10T user group, especially since that scam has been around for so many years.

Hope you have a great day.  🎂

After reading this thread, coincidentally, I happened across information via Major Geeks about Garuda Linux, described as a Linux distro with multiple desktop environments: KDE, Xfce, GNOME, LXQt-kwin, Wayfire, Qtile, BSPWM, i3wm, and Sway.  Garuda Linux.

For that situation, why would you choose Cinnamon instead of Linux Mint?

Since I understand from my (limited) reading, Linux Mint is often recommended for beginners.  I gather the same iso can be used to boot from a flash drive on a Windows PC or used for installing on an old laptop/desktop.  If that is the case, it wouldn't hurt to provide a link to the latest Linux Mint iso.

As you can see, I've already renamed the Linux forums here so as not to detract from Scot's. 

We haven't had many people posting Linux issues here over the years.  When it has happened, I've referred them to Scot's.  However, if you and the others who came here after I created the forums don't neglect Scot's, then it is a win-win for Linux and we can certainly keep things going here.

Edit to add:  If there is something that is more directly explained at Scot's, don't hesitate to post a link there.
