Having a blast

Random notes on the installation of Linux - if using a rotated screen, and can get an Xterm from the live-CD/installer, then you can use 
  xrandr --output VGA1 --rotate left

to not hurt my head + neck - except when it boots or in the BIOS.

If it complains about a missing bits/predefs.h in building anything, go back and install libc6-dev

   sudo apt-get install gcc-multilib libc6-i386 lib6-dev-i386

Of all the fractured X11 GUI nonsense in Linux atm, I really don´t know which one I got in Linux Mint - other than its some variant of GNOME 3. I guess that I don´t care means it works better than Ubuntu unity...
