 :'( Well, sad news, my 10 year old Toshiba died  today. I tried I really did ...... I just could not get Peppermint on it fast enough.
It was running Ubuntu-mate 15.10 and ......it started smoking.... then finally a loud pop  >:( .  I intended to put P8 on it.......but its my fault  I procrastinated..... :(
 Now it lays in the recycle bin waiting for pickup.
What a shame.....tsk ..... tsk ... tsk.....

Sorry to hear about that.  It's always a shame when a good  computer dies.
