That’s a bananas storage setup. If this were my rig, my weekend would be spent just booting, updating, rebooting into a new partition and repeat :smile:

Not quite once a week but a lot of time is needed to ensure they are kept up to date. I do rinse and wash away sometimes but Peppermint / MX19 / openSUSE / ArcoLinux always stay put… The rest is up for grabs and testing…

That is insane! What does your grub screen look like? I’d have trouble deciding what to boot into each day.

Just installed Linux Mint. It takes 4 screens to display them all

I prefer plain grub screens, plain simple txt. You can get more on them :crazy_face:
