So i took the leap of faith.

Post by Swampthing »

I've introduced myself properly in the "Introduce yourself"-thread and got a warm welcome. :D
I tried out LM last week on an old laptop given to me.
2 days ago i wiped my own Lenovo laptop with Windows 10 and installed LM and challenged myself to use it for the rest of 2019.
Although I need to use a Windows program for a couple of weeks still, but I can do that with virtualbox.
So far its going smoothly and I'm truly impressed with LM.
I think the transition to Linux really helps when I start to customize and save stuff on the laptop.
And having a living and breathing forum to help me out is really a confidence booster, so thank you very much. :D

Hi Swampthing

That's great you have been using Linux Mint and are happy with it.

What MS Windows application are you using in Virtualbox with MS Windows that you need to use? Perhaps there is a Linux version of that application or another application that can do the same thing.

Hi Swampthing,

After a quick look at that link you provided, it states that those are available online now which means anyone using any browser on any computer operating system should be able to use them.

Oh yeah I see that.
They didnt give me access to the online part, only a link to the .exe file, so I could download and install the totaltester.
Anyway, its only for a few more weeks, I'll survive. :D'
