Hello all!

Post by JB3 »

I'm very new to Linux and have been using it for about 3 weeks now. I installed Mint 19.3 Cinnamon on virtualbox and played with it for a couple of weeks. That was enough for me to make the change over from Windows 10 permanently. I am not a computer guy but my transition was without any hiccups. I watched a lot of youtube videos before hand and had an idea of what to expect and what to do after installation. It is a lot faster than windows and for my purposes, it has everything I need and a lot more. I would suggest to anyone wanting to try it out to do your homework first and get as much info as you can. I really like it and glad I made the change.

Good report. Welcome to the forums.
