Welcome!
A good tip is to read the Linux Mint User Guide.
Which can be found here!

Hi and good luck.
And by the way, don't forget to create a separate home partition... It is always better like that :wink:

Wish you an issue-less installation

The installation has been successful and I am writing to you from linux mint!! I appreciate the advice and welcomes. I should probably be asking this question in the newbie bit, but which version of opera (browser) should I install? I'm guessin it'd be the ubuntu Gutsy gibbon, right? Ive got to say, you guys have done fantastic job here, I'm really impressed with this distro. It look like mint will have a permanent home on my PC now!

You can get the latest version of opera using mint's software portal.
It's very well explained in the guide :wink:

I'm glad you are pleased with Linux Mint.
You can be sure you made the right choice :)

Wish you the best with Mint
