Newcomer here! From W10 to Ubuntu to Linux Mint

Hello, folk!

So, that's my short story:

One day I said "Enough for me that Windows 10 updates, bugs, errors...." and I started searching other OS. And everybody told me "No, use Windows, Linux is only for programmers". Then in one forum I found Ubuntu is for simple, basic, newcomer linux users. So I choose Ubuntu. And after one month I decided use smth more original. Linux Mint. This version (Cinnamon) is one of the best and nice OS ever I saw :). I don't know how to use Linux, how to solve problems and how to make snapshot backups, but still, it's very nice, smooth for me!

I hope community here are also friendly and I'll discover here many about Linux :).

We are glad to have you here. :) I've learned so much from this wise and welcoming community, and I do my best to give back when possible.

Many of us were like you Kibiras refugees from Windwoes. We've all taken up residence in Linux and are now proud immigrants! :D

It is unfortunate that I have to announce I hold dual citizenship. Due to some programmes that I want to hold on to, my laptop dual boots and co-habits with Windows7.
