Re: New to ubuntu
If you're coming to Linux form a Windows based system then Linux Mint might be easier to adapt to, if you've got an OS X background(like I had) then Ubuntu is a good way to go. ANY Linux version is going to be better then ANY Windows version IMHO but then again I totally hate Windows,LOL. I'd say give Ubuntu 12.04.2 a try, if you like it great, if not then it's not all that hard to install Linux Mint to try. Either way it'll cost you nothing to try and nothing to switch, can't beat that deal.
