New to Linux

Postby Diamyst on Wed Feb 13, 2013 5:15 pm

Hi all. I am pretty new to Linux. Yesterday I installed Linux Mint 14 cinnamon edition. The installation was seamless and I love it. It does everything my PC did with Windows 7 only much, much better and so much quicker. 'course I don't do a whole lot on the computer, email, facebook, games, general surfing and some graphic stuff.

I'm a 62 old artist, female and live in Eastern Ontario near Ottawa. Hope I can gain some linux education from the forms.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
