Linux distro help

Hello

My university uses
Cloudpath's XpressConnect for campus wireless. They support up to Ubuntu 12.04 (32 & 64)
I really like using Linux Mint 15.

My question is if I dual boot or virtualize Mint 15 in Ubuntu12.04, will the uni network work for both?

(I am a converted M$ user. I am still a bit hazey (or more) in knowledge about Linux distros, but that is half the fun right :) )

cheers

  1. I'd guess it should work, yes. Mint is itself a spin-off of Ubuntu, and though your OS may be newer than 12.04 it's going to be more similar than dissimilar under the hood. It may just be that they can't offer help if there is a problem on the unsupported distro.

    You shouldn't even need the Ubuntu, the connection is the same. When they say they support up to 12.04 it just means they know how to configure that. The configuration will be the same in your Mint.
