I've already posted a question in the forum's before finding this bit, this is a whole new experience to me, linux, forum's and community. The answer's to my questions were swift and polite and took into account my total inexperience with linux, very impressed with my first small venture into the world of Mint.
It is my intention to use Mint as my main operating system after becoming totally disillusioned with the little blue circle that keeps going round forever in a certain other o/s.
I'm attracted to Mint because of the 'out of the box' possiblities and hope to be able to run it with as little third party software as possible, I do however, have a bucketload of stuff to learn.............
As a total newcomer one of my aims is to be able to write a tutorial for newcomer's to Mint based on my own experience and challenges, a kind of handbook for the beginner with scattered information collated into one guide, to give a little back as an appreciation for the operating system and advice being freely given.
Don't expect it for a while yet though, I'm busy making notes
