Welcome to the Mint family forums

this is quite a common response from M$ users once they can get their heads around the differences, Unfortunately there are many thousands of them out there who are too scared [or put off by others] to try.

Nice to see another Widows user discovering Linux! :D I have run Linux for so long that I could not imagine running anything else. In my opinion, these are the most exciting times I have ever seen in Linux development. Real games coming to Linux, new desktop environments being introduced, manufacturers and game developers working with Linux developers and new software being built to bridge the gaps, it's great! I am seeing people that I thought would never consider running Linux embracing it and enjoying it. These are really good times! :D
