Not going back!

Kia ora, Tēnā koutou, Hī all,

I've been mucking around with various Linux distros in 2017 and finally settled on Linux mint. I haven't used Windows for some time and booted into Windows 10 last night and couldn't believe how slow it was compared to Linux! I'm now trying to create a USB backup of Windows 10 before wiping it from my zenbook and just going all out with Mint. Mint is so good for watching my live sports streaming. I've been using cinnamon but really keen to try out xfce version too.
So from down in Aotearoa /New Zealand,
Hei kona mai (goodbye for now)
Sean.

Sounds like your mind's made up. Good for you!
I took the jump two years ago, and kept Win7 on my laptop since, but I never booted it in all of those two years... so when 18.3 came out, I installed that over Win7. Feels good, doesn't it... freedom. 8)

You live in a wonderful country, I have some very fond memories! Greetings from the Low Lands on the other end of the globe!

Good Choice, Cripple73! 8)

I moved away from "M$ Windoze" about 7 years ago.

Haven't even considered Windows since.
