1. Can I still use my printer & webcam?
2. I have an older computer with windows 7, 64 bit installed. Can I uninstall windows & use Linux Mint?
3. I use Paltalk & Skype. Will Linux mint accept those?

In fact I would bet you will be pleasantly surprised at how well it will work.
Completely agree.
Installed Mint a few months ago on an old system..... and it's a dream to use.
If you select the updates... they take no time at all to download and install.

One thing that no one has mentioned.....
It's a lot more secure than Windows.
I haven't seen a need to install any type of AV etc.... all I enabled was the Firewall.

I just recently reinstalled Linux Mint on another hard drive so I can dual boot I really like it also very user friendly.
I was having some problems in windows but when I went to Mint I did not have those problems so it in a way
helped me diagnose the problem.In also like the live Linux disks or USB that you can boot to and rescue files
from windows if need be.
