I am just glad that there are people like you around to straighten out people like me. Linux has come a long way since I first tried it back in the 80's. It;s still has a ways to go though if linux wants become the #1 operating system. It's much more stable then Windows, the user interface is great. The only down side to linux (not so much with me) is the command line. Other then that I think Linux especially Mint right now surpasses Windows on all aspects save the one. I have though recommended Mint to friends of mine who are now considering moving to Mint.
I've been a Windows developer since before Windows 1.0 was released when it was merely a DOS extension, having worked for Ashton-Tate on dBase, and being fortunate enough to get hold of the first Windows pre-release, and I too am new to Linux. I moved over to it just a few months ago.
I hate what M$ have done with win8, and without doubt, Linux Mint is the bee's knees. The Mint devs have done a great job. Anyway, this has gone ot so I'll close. Glad I could help.
