comment How to move linux distros without losing data
I can't imagine it's a good idea to try this - you might get away with it since Mint is so similar to Ubuntu, but I would not be surprised if you ended up with a broken system. You can certainly preserve your data (as in, everything in /home), but expecting installed packages to work is probably unrealistic.

comment what is the best way to send a large amount of data between two computers?
Probably because Windows auto-configures the connections with some default non-routable IP - as long as they're on the same subnet and don't assign the same one this will probably work.

Yes. But if you don't have a gigabit router the connection will be much slower.

You don't even need a crossover cable with reasonably modern hardware - the NIC will autonegotiate and perform the crossover automatically.

No point in buying flash memory just to transfer files - why not just connect an Ethernet cable, manually assign addresses, and copy everything over? It's probably the fastest way if both machines support gigabit (well, except a fast USB3.0 drive, I guess).
