Linux Mint is for Girls

Who says ladies can’t be geeks? Let Veronica, certified both, girl and mother, explain why and how:


The Linux Mint 21 (Vanessa) beta has just been announced! In today’s (unscripted) episode of Veronica Explains, let’s try out the beta on a 2012 MacBook Pro!

We’ll customize Cinnamon a bit, install OBS from a Flatpak, and walk through what makes Linux Mint an excellent distro for Linux users of all skill levels. And with only a minimal amount of overheating issues!

All music recorded by me, on Linux, of course!
