I got into Linux about two years ago when I was looking at replacing the ever slowing Windows 10 on a computer I was trying to load. I typed “free operating system” into Google and I saw an article about Linux Mint. After trying to install it on my main computer and crashing it. Since then I have tried to run Linux Mint and other distributions, such as Feren OS, on many of my alternate computers. I just recently installed Linux Mint Cinnamon on my main Dell i5 computer.
I have dabbled in the terminal some, but I love GUI tools. I am convinced that the future of Linux has to be GUI tools. I believe main stream people will come to Linux if they can work on it through GUI tools instead of a terminal. Get your pitch forks out and chant all your chants, but I enjoy Linux and am super thrilled when a new GUI tool comes out for us novice noobs.
