Just like you, I'm a newbie, and by coincidence, I've used Macs for many years. While that gives me an excuse for not knowing much about Linux, It doesn't excuse me from making my own efforts to learn before begging for help, or for rudely and inarticulately demanding assistance.
I started using Mint two months ago. I don't use it because it's pretty. I use it because it works. If Ubuntu worked better, I'd use Ubuntu. I have a hard time understanding why you uninstalled a perfectly working OS, just so you could come here and princess, unless you just want attention.
Yes, I had problems. I had no sound, no wireless, bad resolution, and couldn't mount my Windows HD to read and write. All of them were solved by searching in the forums, mostly Ubuntu's. Didn't even need to ask a single question. I started by realizing that I'm not unique or special, and that others have had the same problems before and solved them. I am grateful to all those who shared their solutions, and left them for me to find.
As it is, you may find a better reception for your questions if you stop acting like a petulant child.
