As I decided to get rid of Windows OS forever, I had to find the next best solution for my personal use. I have been stumbling trough the forums and internet pages in search for some advice.
Where ever I went I have been introduced with Linux distributions such as Ubuntu and Linux Mint.
There was other propositions too, but only occasionally...
I have decided to skip Ubuntu and didn't even think about installing it as my OS. Something just pushed me away from it, and I don't know exactly what it was. It just didn't felt right.
But, I liked what I saw and read about the Linux Mint and I decided to give it a try...
I was so convinced that it was good, that I decided to put it straight in to my Hard Drive and avoid running it from USB drive.
Linux Mint stayed on my PC for just a few weeks. Although it is a great OS, I wasn’t able to make it work for me. I was a Linux newbie and I wasn’t sure what I was doing. Mint was serious OS, loaded with a lot of software straight out of the box. It was a little slow (but still faster than Windows) and did not meet my expectations.
Soon, I was back on my quest for next best solution.
