Thanks for the info and suggestion, dstiles:
I will try out Maya with the mate desktop and see how it goes.
I didn't realize that other versions of Linux Mint were still available so I TRIED to use Olivia (version 15) with cinnamon and it appears to have problems. For instance, I get a message:
Cinnamon just crashed. You are currently running in Fallback Mode.
And when I try to restart cinnamon, I just keep getting the same message.
The other thing is I tried to watch a video on youtube while using the default firefox browser install and the video was all jenked up. Half the video was green, the other half was purple, and the video image was pretty small.
Just in case Linux Mint Maya DOESN'T work out, any other suggestions out there?
