Things to do after a mint installation

Postby stian.86 » Tue Dec 04, 2007 9:06 pm

Just recently switched to Linux Mint, and find it absolutely awesome. I was not familiar with gnome
(or even Linux for that sake) prior to my switch and therefore used a lot of time googeling for the
right applications after my install.

I am now going to install Linux Mint on my second computer as well, and decided to make a list of the
programs I needed to fetch after the install. Long story short, I made a blog out of it, perhaps some help
to the newbies like me who are fresh to the whole Linux experience.

Would be nice with some feedback, criticism is accepted with open arms :)

Thanks for the feedback, I absolutely love Linux Mint, but I will probably feel like a beginner in Mint compared to windows for a long time. I have been working on windows PC for a lot of years, but the learning curve on mint is fast, and fun;)

An excelent post!

One thing I've seen in people converting to Linux is that most have forgotten just how long it took to become profesent in windows, yet they want to be profesent in linux tomorrow.
