Long-term Linux Mint: 19.3 release unchains the Gimp, adds HiDPI, is kind to your older, less-beefy kit


Re: Introduction to Linux for Windows refugees

Because there is good and bad in both Windows and Linux. The nice thing these days is that its easy to try all the options and see for yourself. I'm a Windows guy mainly through work and gaming but I've been interested in Linux lately with Microsoft looking at more open source services and collaboration between both worlds. This is even more true in the cloud with Azure and AWS.

Overall I've had my fair share of issues in the past with Windows but since I built my current PC in 2017 I've had very little issues. Even with the endless Windows upgrade cycle which I delay as much as possible i.e. until Microsoft has fixed everything on a release a year later.

This Mint version looks very interesting and I'll give it a try and see how it runs on my custom PC.
