Nice, I started with Mint as well about 3 years ago, then migrated to Manjaro and finally Arch, but Mint is just perfect for new users. What DE are you using, I guess Cinnamon?

About your very old laptop, what are the specs? Is it 32bit or 64? We can find a distribution that will work on it.

Regarding maintenance, all I do is regular updates, nothing else. Even the trimming of the SSDs I've set it up to be done automatically once a week or so, but if you have a newer Nvme SSD, that job is done by the controller, no need to worry.

Try the following command, it'll show you which services take the most time when booting up, I'm curious: systemd-analyze blame
