Congratz On Your Good Choice! :)

Matt Hartley tells you about his Top 5 reasons why Linux Mint is bettererer.

Bettererererererer than what? you ask, and I can’t tell you, and Matt in his usually rambly way stays kinda vague on that topic as well. Let’s just accept that you choose wisely when you decided on Mint as your Linux distro. And now you know at least 5 reasons for why you are such an awesome Linux n00b. πŸ™‚

Β  Top 5 Reasons Why Linux Mint Is Better. In this video why I think Linux Mint is better. Not saying Linux Mint the best distro, I’m saying that it’s often times better than that “other” OS most people are using. I also think it’s better than some other distros out there. In future videos, I’ll be offering the same Linux distro insights on why I think the distro I’m featuring is better than its alternatives and why.

# Linux Mint is a community project. Instead of owing favors to large corporations, Linux Mint is free to take the path its developers believe is best.

# Linux Mint puts the newbie user first. No matter what development turns Linux Mint has taken over the years or who Mint has appealed to, Linux Mint has always put the newer Linux user first.

# Linux Mint is always fine tuning the Mint tools and other elements of the layout. Linux Mint always seems to take what’s working best and then works to make it even better.

# Linux Mint is based on Ubuntu LTS. Being based on Ubuntu LTS (long term support) means a longer release cycle and often times, a less buggy release overall.

# Linux Mint has all the desktop environments you could want. Well, enough for most of us anyway. Cinnamon, MATE, and Xfce offer us a ton of choice.

# Linux Mint –

Now that you watchered that video, see what I meant by vague? Most of his 5 reasons appear the same on most other Linux distros too. Well, not all distros are super n00b friendly but most are community projects and all are trying to improve their shit … all the fukn time. Linux don’t freeze, it’s a living thing, kept alive and being developed by armies of volunteers and professionals. And I know of a dozen Linuxes which are based on Ubuntu, LTS or all versions is just a matter of taste. And if you like your Linux OS filled to the brim with goodies or prefer a rather sparsely populated OS you can equip with your most beloved apps by yourself, is alsoΒ  just a matter of taste.

Actually this video makes only very little sense, and Matt must have been bored out of his skull and felt the pressure to fill his YT channel with content. Same as I do to fill my bloggo with content. After all you’re now again assured that you made the correct, the good choice whe you decided for Linux Mint!

What I find most convincing about Mint is its accessability for new users without even claiming to be n00b friendly. It is a very friendly distro. Just as it is naturally. That’s why it’s loved by old salts as well as by total beginners. You don’t have to see Mint as a starting point, as a bicycle with training wheels, there’s no pressure to leave the Minty goodness behind as soon as you’re cool in the Linux world. Absolutely not. You can grow old on this system!

And now, my little ponies, go out, *get a computer, put Minty on it and be awesome!

And after having been awesome you remember you have a dedicated Linux computer at your disposal so you can continue being awesome … for the rest of your life! And being awesome includes preparing a report about your personal journey to Linux and your experiences and publish it on Orca’s little bloggy. And, of course, photos or it didn’t happen!

Hehe. πŸ™‚

* Maybe by following Karmi’s shopping list?
