Newbie Here...

Post by Hokkyo »

Hello

I am new and excited to embark on the Linux journey. I have created a USB boot stick and have been playing with Linux Mint 19.3 of & on for a couple of days. Trying to learn the ins & outs of this OS. I will be installing the OS on a new SSD mounted in a HP Pro Book 450.

I have been using win 7 and I cannot bring myself to switch to win 10. I hope to migrate all my current work to Linux machines. I will have a couple of challenges. First, I use Quickbooks 2013 for my business. and I enjoy using iTunes to manage my music, audio books, and to update & backup my Apple devices. Secondly, I have been using microsoft Outlook for many years. I am not tied to the email part, bur I am joined at the hip with the calendar.

I will be asking some very newbie questions and as a rule I seem to come up with questions that are difficult as well. I am looking forward to chatting with you and using your offered solutions to my little problems.

Thanks in advance
Hokkyo

Hi Hokkyo,
welcome to our forum.

there does seem to be an whole pile of folks, that are very reluctant to "upgrade" to that win-10 system.
:lol:
