Linux Mint Cinnamon 18.2 both 32bit and 64 bit download is now available for download Having said that I will hang fire for a couple of weeks before I install it.
Thanks for the heads up @bootneck02 .
I've tried using Mint quite a bit, primarily because of the Linux devotees on here. I still find using it more difficult than Windows for my needs, but I do like having a go every so often, just to see how it progresses. I still prefer Ubuntu overall, but I can see the benefits of Mint.
What sort of difficulties ?
Familiarity and compatibility with software I use - nothing that prevents me using it, but I certainly find Windows much more productive for work. I imagine that if I had a different job (i.e. coder, developer) or more time, I would find using Linux quite fun as a desktop OS.
I use very light versions of Linux for small servers (I have a Linux print server and the NAS is Linux powered) and I like the fact that I can just SSH in and use terminal to control them.
Ah right yes it does take time to learn different software. So do you need I am guessing some Windows specific stuff ?
I am not up on networking, can you not shh into a Windows set up then ? If not how on earth do they control them then. I am almost sure that you can shh into a gui environment with a linux set up too but most folk just use the terminal due to the lower overhead.
I think, that it is a nececcity for a computer specialist to use MS Windows. But Linux for me is a fun and thrilling activity. Another point is that apart from ssh there is VNC, which helps me a lot.
