ajg007,

Welcome to the Linux Mint Forums, and to Linux Mint!

I personally have found Mint to work much better 'out-of-the-box' than other popular distributions I have tried, so your experience doesn't surprise me. I hope you get through whatever issues arise with Mint smoothly. If you run across problems, the Forums are a great place to look for previous solutions to your issues and to get help.

Great to have you here!

Caerolle :)

Thanks!

Mint is working quite well at this time but is not as easy as the other ones i tried. Not trying to say there is anything wrong with mint in anyway, i quite like it, but its more of a learning curve.

Learning terminal, sudo(confused) app sources....am i too old for this at 36 and a bit? :lol: :P :roll:

I wouldn't say Mint, or any other Linux flavor, is easy, at all! Just saying that compared to other Linux versions I tried, Mint worked the best. The Mint folks seem to have spent a lot of time making things compatible.

I am new to Linux too, and am learning a lot! The thing I like about Mint is that the big stuff works well right away, so I can take time to learn how to dig into *how* it works and still be able to use my system, rather than switching back-and-forth between Windows and Linux. And really, yes, Linux has a lot more to learn and figure out, but moving to any new OS takes time. I have bought Macs at different times over the years, and the whole environment was so opaque, I was constantly frustrated. At least with Linux, you can tell how things work and find lots of info on how to do stuff.

Caerolle :)

Hi ajg007, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums!

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 have picked the Cinnamon edition of Linux Mint :wink:).

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-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users.

Have fun with Linux Mint.
