Hi Everyone

Hi Everyone,

My name is Bill and have finally said goodbye to Windows 10 and am now converted to Linux Mint.
It will take me a while to get to know it fully and will probably have lot's of questions i will need help with at some stage, so hope you won't mind assisting a Linux Mint novice now and then.

Thank you for allowing me to join, i look forward to conversing with you all and learning more about this super system.

Best wishes
Bill

Hi Bill & welcome to our Forum.
:D
did you actually delete the Win-10, & install LinuxMint, rather than a dual_boot?.

Do Take the Time to Read the LinuxMint Users Guide that came with the installation.

Hi Pierre,

Yes i totally wiped Windows 10 and installed Linux Mint in it's place.
I was so fed up with those Windows updates messing everything up and had countless crashes because of them. And certainly did not relish the thought of the next one "The Creators Update" doing the same. So enough was enough and time to wave goodbye to Windows 10 and move onto Linux Mint.

I do have one question that i am searching the forum for the answer at the moment. If i can't find the solution i will post the question in the correct board and not here on the Introductions one.

Welcome to the Mint family forums.

Most problems already have a fix
search
read
ask
If you need to ask please copy and paste the result of terminal code inxi -Fnx with your question
And take your time to avoid disappointment.

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.
