Hello

Post by Black Swordsman » Thu Feb 22, 2018 9:00 pm

I am new to Linux, I had tried using Unbuntu several years earlier but had a problem and couldnt get it up and working. Now I am giving Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.3 a try because the research that I did informed me that this was the "easiest" to learn. I have already noticed that my computer is working many times faster than when it was trying to run windows 10.

I hope to learn a lot by using Linux Mint and I thank you all for all the help you guys provide
