I am new to linux. I have tried three different distros. First I used jolicloud, which was ok, but most of the time you had to be online for anything to work. Then I tried Umbuntu 12.04, but natalus would keep freezing up, so now I have linux mint Lisa, and I must say so far I have found it the best of the three. To bad I did not find this on first. I dumped Windows 7 because my netbook was slowing down to a crawl. Most of this happened after windows updated for the 1,000,000Th time. I plan on staying with linux mint for the long haul. The install was a lot better than the other two, and I did not have to tweak anything to make it work.
Keep up the good work!
