Re: Greetings from Switzerland, congrats for this nice distrib

On my Cinnamon, I go to Menu, System Settings, Preferred Applications (set to Chrome).

Worst case, if you do not use FF, you could remove.

Re: open source alternatives to wordpad [rtf]

Perhaps the "Text Editor"? I think it comes with Cinnamon. I just created an 'rtf'. There may be a way to have it default to 'rtf'? :?:
