I've been a GNU/Linux user since the early Slackware and Red Hat days. I've run a wide variety of distros through the years (including Gentoo, which would probably still be my choice, if low-cost high speed Internet were available to me in the woods where I now live, having escaped my qubicle a couple of years ago). Now I mostly desire an OS that I can just install, configure, and forget for many years without having to do much anything other than visit a public library for Internet bits for updates every week or month or so or a new proggy package that interests me.
I also tend to run old hardware these days and my Samsung N145 Plus daily driver was acting quite long in the tooth with Ubuntu Unity (not surprising) and so I've decided to revist more minimlist and light weight options. So far I've installed the latest WattOS and Peppermint offerings. I really liked WattOS R10, but my Qualcom wireless adapter would occassionally drop my connection to my Moto G4 Plus smartphone hotspot (ATT service) and I'm not yet willing to invest the time needed to fix one of these pesky wifi adapter / driver issues. (They are sadly common, given the preponderance of proprietary wifi "intellectual property" in the computer industry!)

Unlike the past, I could not get my wifi adapter to reconnect in WattOS by running ifconfig or toggling the panel GUI switch on and off. On the other hand, Peppermint has been bombproof in this respect, but I'm not completely enamored with Peppermint and I'm still looking for the right choice for myself so I will install Bodhi next.
A quality forum community and support is a big part of my choice so, quite honestly, that's why I'm introducing myself now--before I even bother to visit the public library in town to download the Bodhi .iso!
