If you’re fed up with Windows 10 and its hiccups, or you can’t afford the new MacBook Pro with fancy TouchBar, somewhere there’s a solid Linux system waiting for you. Linux Mint is often regarded as one of the best Linux desktop operating systems. Over the years, Mint has established itself as a competent Windows 10 replacement and its impressive releases continue to affirm this notion.
Earlier this year in June, we witnessed the release of Linux Mint 18 Sarah. Now, the second point release of Linux Mint 18, i.e., Mint 18.1 Serena, is just around the corner. It’s slated to arrive later this December.

Hello, new to this subreddit here, I just wanted to reshare my thoughts about Linux command line and beginners using it. Please feel free to discuss & comment :)
Here's the original post: https://plus.google.com/102383287758197741530/posts/RBAsSn5DxPG
I've been seeing a lot of "Top X commands a Linux begginner should know" guides lately, and I cannot really understand why.
Why would any Linux beginner want to run commands on their system? Does that mean my grandma also need to type strange words to a black window in order to do something more on some distro? If we want Linux (distros) reach more audience, we need to stop telling beginners to „run this command” in order to fix / install / remove something, they should be able to do that much simpler by e.g: a simple GUI.
To most people, black window and white / green text means „hacking”, although in case of terminals it's really not, they’ll always try to stay away from it. That is because normal, no power users just want to have a button that says „Install” or „Do something”. They just want to click it and do it’s thing. When was the last time you opened a Windows console to install something? I’m talking about daily things you want to do, not developement purposes here.
Then you’ll hear a „I ran command X and now my system doesn’t boot! How to fix it?”, and this beginner is told to execute another commands that „hopefully will fix the problem” until the user somehow manages to fix it, gives up or either reinstalls the entire OS.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t say that no one should use a terminal. I am 16 and I use terminal every time I use Linux, to compile code / debug it. The keyword here is „beginner”, a person who isn’t really familar with Linux in general. Sure, power users, developers, Linux enthusiasts can use it without a problem because it gives them much more control over things, but in case of Linux distros, it is that everyone needs to know what terminal is, use it to get things done.submitted by /u/donadigo
