After more than two decades of MS-DOS/Windows and after a first (incomplete) attempt on Linux some ten years ago, I'm in for real this time.
I started by test driving Ubuntu 11.10 on a virtual machine but I didn't really like the interface. It is not very functional in my opinion. Then I gave Debian Squeeze a try and I was really enjoying it until I was reading about the various Linux distros out there and Linux Mint 12 caught my eye. It is now sitting on my desktop machine for five full days and I am loving it!
