Hey guys. A while back I put up a thread about "PC vs Mac." It got a ton of responses and was very informative. See, I need to get a new computer (after I'm able to land a steady job). Since I'm on a tight budget, I have been leaning towards building my own computer (a desktop).
Well, after reviewing all the components I would need, I saw the cost of software. For me to get Windows 7 and MS Office, I would need to drop $230! That's more than the friggin motherboard!
So I looked at alternative operating systems and came across Linux. At first, Ubuntu caught my eye. After some digging and reviewing long time Linux-users' opinions, I have begun to look at Linux Mint instead. Basically, I'm definitely no programmer or computer whiz. But I do think I am intelligent enough and have enough common sense to use Linux. Are there any -bro's out there that have any recommendations, advice or warnings that I should know by considering Linux?
