That's the plan.  I need to go out and buy some RW DVDs.  (I assume the bootables don't come on CDROM anymore?  Haven't DLed one in ages.)  Boot off a thumb maybe?

@Cyber Liberty
NOPE. WAIT.

DL ISO
DL RUFUS (portable - does not install)
Stuff in Thumb.
Run RUFUS
NM everything and point it to the Thumb and the ISO... Everything else will rejigger accordingly. [OK]
Watch the pretty chugging zippy bar.
fini.

Restart
F12 (or whatever) Choose to boot the stick.

Nobody uses CDs anymore d00d. It will blow you away how much faster installs are on a thumb.
And if you are USB3, that Mint Live will run nearly as well as it would if installed.

Stuff in Thumb.

That could be taken more than one way, I guess... Hope we're on the same page

LOL!  Bkmrk'ing your RUFUS link.  No USB3, but that's OK.  I have plenty of thumbs laying around.  32 GB good?
Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."
I will NOT comply.

Well, you could get a Mac.

OS and security updates are free.

Of course, the "buy-in" cost is higher.
