New to Linux

Post by Mactexas744 »

I just installed Linux mint 19 on one of my computers. I heard about Linux on the No Agenda podcast from Adam Curry and John Dvorak. They both said it was easy to install and on the last podcast Adam raved about the power of Linux. I know nothing about Linux but I am willing to learn.

Welcome mac... It's good to hear that you are willing to try something "new" based upon recommendations. Just don't become a "click bunny" (i.e. "I wonder what this does?" and click on it to see, only to find that it was delete OS, command). Seriously, you'll find that sort of stuff pretty hard in Linux, so you shall be fine.

Welcome!

I didn't know anything about Linux 5 years ago and now I've been able to help a few people on the forum.

Take your time and don't expect to learn all of it in a day.
