New to Linux - From Philippines

Post by danangeloalcanar » Fri Mar 30, 2018 11:10 pm

Hello Linux Mint Community!

I am new to Linux and I decided to go with Linux Mint because they say it is user friendly. I am a Windows user.
I want to use Linux because I am hired as web developer and most of the tutorials I have seen uses unix.
Now I installed Mint in a virtual box to give it a try. I hope this will be a good learning journey.

Thanks. Hope you can guide me.

Love from Philippines
-Dan
