Re: So i took the leap of faith.

Oh yeah I see that.
They didnt give me access to the online part, only a link to the .exe file, so I could download and install the totaltester.
Anyway, its only for a few more weeks, I'll survive. :D'

So i took the leap of faith.

I've introduced myself properly in the "Introduce yourself"-thread and got a warm welcome. :D I tried out LM last week on an old laptop given to me. 2 days ago i wiped my own Lenovo laptop with Windows 10 and installed LM and challenged myself to use it for the rest of 2019. Although I nee...

Re: Why did you decide to install Linux Mint?

I started using computers in the early 90's, with DOS 6.22 I think, and various Windows versions from 3.11 up to XP. Then I bought an Iphone and Ipad and didn't use computers for several years, simply because my desktop with XP crashed all the time and I gave up on it + MS stopped supporting XP. So ...

Re: Greetings from Denmark!

Thank you very much for welcoming me. :D So a clean install is recommended to switch to Xfce? Or is there a workaround? BTW one of my friends have an old laptop with Win XP, that he uses at home with no acces to the internet. I think its from 2005, and I'm going there tomorrow to install Mint on it ...

Re: Greetings from Denmark!

Thank you. :D I installed 19.1 Cinnamon, simply because of a random decision. I had to upgrade the RAM from 1 GB to 2GB, to make it more smooth and planning to find another 2 GB RAM stick, so I'll end up with 4 GB. I was only planning to fool around and see if Mint was for me and its been a very pos...

Re: Greetings from Denmark!

Amazing! :D Thank you very much. I'll read it and learn, so far Mint seems fast and elegant. I'll use it to learn more about Linux, simply because I'm curious and maybe later use Linux in my future jobs. Right now I'm considering wiping the Lenovo and install Mint on that as well or maybe start with...
