Just installed Solus alongside Mint (Cinnamon) on this 10 year old HP8730W. I watched a youtube video from Joe Collins and thought I'd take it for a spin.
First I have to say NICE WORK!! Simple and elegant.
Of all the complicated froo froo one can find in setting up a system, we come to expect little challenges and aggravations, no?
But here's the thing. A few minutes after booting Solus, I get a notification that my network printer was found and ready to go. I opened Writer and scratched off a quick document and heard the printer wind up in the other room. How nice. Seriously. How freaking nice!
It's the little things.
Thank you all!
