Finally..Just Linux Mint

Post by espressoguy »

I just reunstalled linux mint 12, deleting windows vista...which really sucks...and taking over my whole partition.Why would you want to install a software that makes your Linux OS behave like Window$ OS. Its been a bumpy ride, but Linux is not for sissys. I would rather not use a windows program than have to install software to make the computer function as if it had windows. Your either in or your out. I am not trying to be nasty, I just think that it took me years to figure out windows so learning a new OS like linux sdould take a bit of time. Good luck.

Congratulations, my friend. Linux is not for sissies, as you say, but well worth all the effort to learn it :D

There's always dual-booting. Most Linux OSes make dual-booting with Windows a doddle, then you can take as much time as you need to learn about it and still be productive. You've then got the choice of staying with the dual-boot arrangement or moving over entirely to Linux. Mint4win is another useful way to get started.

No, Linux isn't for sissies, but you don't need a computer science degree either. Basically you just need curiosity and then a whole new world opens up for you. I never had this much fun with my computers before I came across an article about Ubuntu in a computer mag and decided to try it just out of curiosity and it all took off from there.
