Hello everybody,
Newcomer here. For work purposes decided to make the switch to Linux and Mint in particular since its closest to Windows thus making the transition a bit easier. Still finding myself around getting all the software I need, but will get there. This is my 2nd touch to Linux in my life. First time was about 10 years ago when I was a youngster doing some volunteering stuff and a guy came and donated a PC with Fedora on it. For me back then it was horrendous experience.

HI Simonmir, As you've found, Linux is a lot friendlier now than it ever has been. The transition from windwoes is quite painless. All you need do, now, is find alternatives for some of the Windwoes programs to which you have become used.

Hello and welcome to the forum Simonmir, :)

Hopefully your second time around with Linux will proceed better than the first trial.
