Hi Everyone,
I have just installed linux mint on my laptop.I was frustrated with windows 10s high use of ram and hard drive.So i decided to shift to Linux. I have no experience of using any linux distros.So hope that everyone would help me to get on with mint.I heard many praise of this forum.So it feels good to join here.

Curious as to your computer background, and what led you to MInt.
As has been stated we have many os refugees here. You mentioned Windows,
have you tried other alternatives before Mint?
