Hi all, my name is Marko, I come from Croatia.

Nice to meet you all and I just installed my Linux Mint 16 (Petra)... Petra was my ex gf name so I hope this OS will be better :lol:

I want to ask you at the start:

What things I should do before actually using the system?

Like update manager, setting up fonts.. etc..

Welcome to Linux Mint! There's nothing you really must do before starting to use it; it's intended to be useful right out of the box :wink: But yes, update through Update Manager is a very good idea to do first. After that, it's really up to what you need--perhaps add some programs or games, perhaps customize a bit with wallpaper, themes, applets and so on.
