Hey guys, I wanted to use Mint Mate 17.1 for a while via. full USB Install. I ran into issues with it being Unusually slow. I have done this before with Mate 17 and it worked well, even fast considering the USB and pc it is being run on. I decided to plug my way through with Updates in hopes that it would get better, but the Updates were just as slow and had to bail out on the whole deal due to time constraints. Really, it was unusable, and, I was using the same exact type of USB that I did before, but perhaps there is a difference that I don't know about. I tried to find info on testing usb speeds on my linux system but they were all to convoluted. I will look for windows next.
Here is my gparted pic in case there is anything that would be of interest. I left a little space at the end as I was of the belief that this would help the drive function better and maybe last longer as it is a type of SSD.
