Introduction to Linux for Windows refugees

When I couldnt put up with the behaviour of Microsoft any longer, Cinnamon was suggested as the most 'windows like' environment available.

As such it acts as an intro to Linux environments for windows expats, a reasonably familiar and comforting front end, over the linux experience of trying to get stuff to actually work.

Once I was happy enough with Cinnamon I tried some other Linux distros, but it is still useful as a near-windows machine.
