Here! This is the failsafe instructions on how to put the nifty Linux Mint on your old and creaky laptop that is too slow to run Win10. It was originaly written by some inksplotter of The Verge but I found it on Robin’s blog, so he gets first dibs:
But hey, if you can’t read so good, there are numerous videos you can watch on YouTube. And don’t worry, Mint is a very easy peasy Linux distro to install, so any installation instructions you can find will work the same or similar also for the Minty goodness. And another Hey: Contrary to Robin, I’m from the Mint camp and won’t recommend Linux Lite. It’s even more nanny than Mint and doesn’t treat you like a grown up adult person. And only gives you the unacceptable Xfce desktop environment. But you’re young and spunky and totally sexy, so for you only Mint’s Cinnamon will do! Ok?
