I have now been running Linux Mint for a couple of months as a main OS and I am gradually becoming a huge fan of it, I have Winodows 7 now installed on my second PC, but only ‘in case’. Mint runs so well and is so easy to set up and update.
The forums out there help loads with getting the terminal commands needed to perform various actions and overall there are very few glitches or less good aspects which cannot be ironed out. Certain things like the screensaver starting over any flash video are quite annoying at first, but once you learn to live with them it is no problem. The Linux equivalents of some software are a bit dull to look at and sparse on features in comparison to their Windows counterparts, but I can live with that. If it means I need an extra program to perform other functions, so be it.
