Good afternoon everyone

Post by bellanator89 »

Hello to all! I am a new Linux mint user, I have only been using Linux Elementary OS, Ubuntu 20.04, and now Linux Mint for about a month. I love it! I don't know why I took so long to start using Linux, but here I finally am, lol. I really like that I am taking back my privacy instead of always using Windows 10. I also installed Linux Mint the XDE version on my Surface Laptop 3 successfully. It has worked the best out of those distros I have tried.
