0) Got a Windows 7 and Lubuntu VMs stood up. Tried to install SQL Server 2017 installed, but an arbitrary decision of the part of Microsoft prevents you from installing it on Win7. On the bright side, DVDFab works fine in the VM, and I got VS2017 installed (took a couple of hours).

1) I experienced the most painless hardware transition I can recall (the media file server went tits up last weekend). Swapped out motherboard, memory and CPU (Gigabyte AX370 w/ 8 SATA ports, Ryzen 2600, 16GB DDR4 RAM). I also changed over from an old 60GB SSD to a 128GB nVME drive. I used CloneZilla to move the existing Lubuntu instance to the nVME drive. It took less than 5 minutes, and booting is LIGHTNING fast. I have all of my drives connected to the motherboard (including the DVD drive), and I stil have one SATA port free. Life is good.

3) Linux Mint comes with some bastardized version of xScreesaver installed. I say "bastardized" because the settings screen for the XMatrix scrensaver doesn't have all of the possible settings for that screensaver. Namely, density and frame rate. Still trying to work that out.

4) My wife was concerned that she wouldn't be able to do her web-based jigsaw puzzles, but I allayed her fears. I think her transition to linux is going to be fine. I told her she's been using some form of linux for at least the last 12 years (android phone and iPad). Her reply, "Yeah, but I didn't notice." That, ladies and gentlemen, is the ultimate hurdle.
