Hi , I'm British senior citizen using Ubuntu since 2007 and most recently on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS . The Linux Mint Maya installation DVD worked a treat without a single hiccup and the Gnome desktop is such a relief after Ubuntu's recent tablet like OS developments . The one oddity was a restricted range of fonts in LibreOffice , which was completely solved through the installation of the texLive package through the Package Manager . Such a comfort that Maya is an LTS version and that Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu . Thank you .

Welcome to mint and it's family forums

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.
