From a newbie: Best experience with Linux yet!

Post by enterbootless » Wed Jan 24, 2018 4:58 pm

Semi newbie here ready to finally quit lurking after about a year of dual booting Windows and Ubuntu.

After a few weeks of hit and miss Arch on on a spare laptop that seems to only semi support anything but windows I decided to install Mint Cinnamon one weekend just messing around and to my surprise everything works perfectly right out of the box! I had a lot of problems with the package manager and software center on Ubuntu so I especially appreciate how smooth it's been reinstalling everything into Mint.

Most of my familiarity with the Linux environment is a server and virtual machine to learn basic c++ for a few programming classes but I really enjoyed it and want to keep using Linux over windows whenever I can.

Looking forward to being a part of the community!

Wonderful! Welcome to the forums.
Don't forget to edit your original post and add [SOLVED] to the beginning of the Subject line if your problem has been fixed.
My main language is English. I speak very little Portuguese, and a whole lot of gibberish.
