Newbie David Reporting

Post by dnavratil » Thu Feb 07, 2019 4:47 pm

David, Senior Citizen, Retired, Windows10 DT user until last week (Ransomware attack)! Still using W10 as Desktop but installed LM XFCE 19.1 LTS yesterday on the laptop, setting right next to my desktop. I'm a total newbie when it comes to Linux, heard nothing but good stuff about it and watched a YouTube video the other night by Christopher Barnatt on LM XFCE, so decided to try it out! You will be getting lots of questions from me! Tks, David N.
