Hello all, i am a dutch guy from 56 years old, and after a major comp crash yesterday, i installed Mint 16.

I will ask questions if i cannot find wat i want....

I'm using Linux Mint for 2 weeks now.
Completely new to it.
I find the terminal really useful.

Once you understand the concept of the terminal it is better, when you do something with the GUI all it does is send a terminal command.

It's all terminal commands at the end of the day :)

Lol it is not the fact that i must use the terminal for a lot of things, it is the fact that i do not know wat it is doing:-)
