Hello from the UK

Post by illy1WFR » Mon Oct 29, 2018 5:22 pm

Hello all I'm illy from England, new to LINUX this week, I'm here because I'm disillusioned with the amount of garbage that windows forces you to have, but now I'm here LINUX is actually a lot more interesting and friendly. So they say a little knowledge is dangerous, believe me that makes me very very dangerous LOL, I shall be picking all your brains very soon now doubt. :mrgreen:

Hello illy,
Welcome to Mint and the forums.
The learning curve is not as steep as it firstly seems and levels out quickly.
Enjoy the adventure and your newly found freedom.

Hi illy1WFR, I hardly notice any functional difference between Linux and Windwoes..... EXCEPT, Linux is Waaaay more stable, Faaaaaar easier to instal and Not intrusive with it's updates. along with about a million other things that drove me away from Windoze in the first place. You'll find Linux a breath of fresh air.
Kernel: 4.15.0-46-generic x86_64 bits
Desktop: Cinnamon 3.8.9

Laptop HP-ProBook-470-G2 8Gb RAM SSD
