Old Newbie

Post by BoringArchivist »

Hello Everyone,
I've been a lifelong Windows user, since 3.1 and decided to try something new. I pulled an old forgotten laptop out of my office, made a bootable USB drive, wiped out Windows, and installed Mint 19.2. No issues so far, but I do want to learn how to do some more Linux things, like use a Terminal, etc.

Welcome BoringArchivist! I've been using Linux since 1999, and I'm still learning new things daily. This is good thing. :)

Since you expressed an interest in the terminal, allow me to recommend The Linux Command Line book (it's available for free as a PDF), as well as its companion website LinuxCommand.org. Both are quite educational.

A great overall Linux resource is the Easy Linux Tips Project, which has a focus on Linux Mint, and has many tips to get you up to speed.
