Hi, newbie
I'm guessing that English is not your first language. You use Linux in the same way as you use any other Operating system. Think of it as driving a car. You own a Honda, then someone gives you a Volvo to drive. Both have the same aim, get you from point a to point b. Of course the buttons are different, and they are in different places, reliability of the vehicle may be another issue, but, you get the idea.
Kernel: 4.15.0-36-generic x86_64 bits: 64
Desktop: Cinnamon 3.8.9
Distro: Linux Mint 19 Tara

Laptop T4500 Dualcore 4Gb RAM
Server AMD Phenom 9650 - GEForce 9400GT 6Gb RAM
+ three other Linux Mint machines
Out of my mind - please leave a message

Hi Newbie
I would always suggest you go here first it saved me a lot of problems when I started and I managed to learn what to do and what not to do. It is by far the best and the easiest to follow and understand - if you have already installed then still go here because it will make your experience better
