Which Mint ? Or something Else ?
#1
Greetings To All !

Sick of Windows 10 and all the associated ... uhmm ... nonsense ! You all know the deal I expect.

I will be building a new pc soon and want it as my daily driver ... and I want to try Linux. It's an AMD based system with Ryzen 2600X and an older GTX 650 GPU (for now) . For the sake of simplicity, I'm leaning toward Mint and was wondering which version would suit my needs. I'm guessing Cinnamon or Mate.

My needs are the usual suspects. Use internet (wifi mostly), email, spreadsheets, watch videos online, do some minor graphics creation and play a few games online. I really don't want to be too fussed with fiddling with this or that, OS-wise, until I am more familiar with Linux, generally. This will be a weening off W10 process, so I will keep W10 on my laptop until I'm comfortable with Linux. Then I will trash 10 on lappy once a good comfort level is reached.

I have other questions, but can be done on a different post. Thanks to the Linux community for providing such great alternatives to the megacorps schlock !

Loving the vids Joe ! Cheers !
