Life without Windows or OS X

GNU/Linux is quite possibly the most important free software achievement since the original Space War, or, more recently, Emacs. It has developed into an operating system for business, education, and personal productivity. GNU/Linux is no longer only for UNIX wizards who sit for hours in front of a glowing console. Are you thinking about switching to Linux and want to learn how to use it? Have you been using GNU/Linux for some time and want to learn even more? This is the place for you.

Linux Mint Cinnamon/Linux Mint Mate

Linux Mint is the number one Linux distribution on Distrowatch. Like many Linux distributions, Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon doesn’t ship with proprietary hardware drivers but installing such drivers is pretty easy. All you have to do is Launch Menu ‣ Sound & Video ‣ Install Multimedia. Codecs. Click Install then enter your password and wait for the codecs to be installed on your computer.

The latest version of Mint, 18.3  needs 2GB RAM and 1024×768 resolution, but slightly less disk space at 15GB. However, it recommends 20GB to ensure the best performance.Linux Mint tracks upstream Ubuntu long-term support (LTS) releases. This foundation means that Linux Mint gets the security and maintenance updates Ubuntu LTS users get.Linux Mint 19 will be based on Ubuntu 18.04 LTS. This gives the Linux Mint team a modern yet solid foundation on which to build. It also means Linux Mint 19 will get critical security fixes until 2023.
