Hi lina, welcome to the Linux Mint forums
Thanks for joining the forums! The animations are fun to look at (especially enjoyed Autumn Painters
), but the signing was perhaps not for me.
Be sure also to check out the Community
website (tutorials, hardware and software reviews, ideas), and the Cinnamon Spices
website for adding even more themes, applets and extensions to Cinnamon (if you'll picked the Cinnamon edition).
You can also chat in real-time with other Linux Mint users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-debian for support with other LMDE users.
Have fun with Linux Mint.
