I have Dell Inspiron 1501 computer and have been using it from the past several months. First of all i was using it by the use of Windows XP. Later I switched to Linux Mint. After installing Mint I have started facing several problems and making me very frustrating. Actually the problem I am getting was with the ATI open source drivers. Those drop drivers are not supporting my laptop in any manner. After several try I decided to install Windows Vista on my laptop hoping that they might support those drivers. Following getting Windows Vista my laptop has started working faster than the previous Mint. So it seems to me that the Linux Mint will sluggish the laptop’s performance. What do you say about this?
