    Did you install? Make sure you have the PC connected to internet so that it downloads shim-signed and efibootmgr from the repo otherwise it will install grub2-non-efi. Then you need to use rEFInd to load the correct kernel and boot into it and run sudo update-grub after you install those packages.
    I just tried Parrot Home OS in live cd and it was painful to install on existing partitions and it failed. I installed Ubuntu Budgie and install was done in 5 mins.
    Parrot OS Home I used was MATE edition just like Linux Mint. The UI is simple and elegant but settings are buried deeper than in ubuntu distros.

    Clean installed on my Dell Precision 5510. So far running smooth, and funny enough, battey life has improved. We'll see what its like in a couple weeks.

    Battery life is better thanks to on-demand Optimus switching, I can managed to 5 hrs instead of 2.5hrs on 96Wh battery.

    Seems like a nice list of enhancements. I'm going to have to upgrade when I have some spare time.

    Here are just the Linux Mint 20 wallpaper JPG files pulled from the archive for use with Windows for whoever wants them. It's good to see all of them are higher than 1080p resolution. The Redmond Slobs should pay attention. 1080p is entry-level, low-end Chromebook and tablet wallpaper image quality now. Yet, they only provide crappy 1080p stock wallpaper with Windows 10.

    Good to know. Thank you for sharing. I'm used to having to make sure I am disconnected from the internet to get the result I want from Windows. Otherwise, a butt-load of cancer gets downloaded during Windows 10 Setup. I should be OK because my preference is Legacy (non-EFI) and that is how things are intentionally set in my BIOS.
    Great to see an example of something being produced in an operating system that actually adds value for a change. That is extremely rare in a Micro$lop world where everything they touch turns to crap.

    Ready to go.

    Linux Mint is/was on my desktop. I just upgraded it to Mint 20.

    I have Zorin Linux installed on my TongFang turdbook.
