Linux Mint 19 on The Thinkpad T60p

So the wait is over.
Installed Linux Mint 19 (not a Beta) today, the XFCE version (32 bits, of course) on the T60p.
Installation was a brief, the usual options for setting up an encrypted LVM and to have your $HOME encrypted are there.
This version of Mint-Y looks amazing.
The whole thing feels amazingly snappy, even on this prehistoric lappie, with only 3 GB of RAM.

The developers have done some seriously good work on the performance of Mint 19. I installed Mint 19 Cinnamon on my T60 (not even a T60p) and it performs well. It is also very cool looking as you say. However, I like LXDE as the desktop manager on these old machines, so I installed that over the Cinnamon base and now the T60 really flies. I keep my T60 because it has the 15" 4:3 IPS screen, unobtainable on newer laptops, so it is a joy to find a modern operating system which works so well on it.
