A while back I picked up 2 laptops, one working and one for parts. The working one caused me to have a intro into linux. The parts machine was sitting around missing a hard drive. Well I was given a WD 80G today and it works in the parts machine. After another learning session (dont put anything else on your live USB stick) I have it up and running. I had to redo my live usb and I wanted to go with MINT but I couldnt figure out which version was which. I ended up with Zorin since the .iso was already on my working machine.
Now I would like to try mint out but which one do I need? When I go to the Mint site I am blasted with too many choices. Naydia, Maya, KDE. I know I need a 32bit os (Lenovo R52). So could I get a point in the right direction as to which version would be a good starting point. I will be using unetbootin and burning the .iso from my HDD to the USB so i can Download which ever version from the mint site.
