Welcome, I am also a "new" Linux Mint user. I am not new to Linux/Unix but I just switched from Ubuntu to Linux Mint.
Don't stress, let other people do that.

hi welcome
I am also a newbie at Linux [only 3 weeks or so] and have found it so easy to use .....
The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

Linux is a kernel, there are many different distribution, Ubuntu, Mint, Mandriva ecc.. Mint (ubuntu) is the easier, there are distribution like archlinux etc, this is very hard (i've tried to install it, i've failed every time :lol: ) Mint is the best for we, newbies :D

I have 2 on mint 10/64bit and one on Ubuntu, found both easy to use [I'm now too old and miserable to re-learn command line and the more purest forms]
