Okay, now that I tried out linux mint, maybe, just maybe, I am ready to evaluate. I am using a lappy by lenovo that will not set the world alight, no wonder, I bought it for 20 euros.i walked out from everything I knew, w7, because m$ got smart. They invented the meaningless word telemetry. And I turned my back on them as a paying customer. I may be a spoiled brat. I am used to software being just a click away. Mint comes with firefox. I heartily detest it. It devoures resources. I have used dillo. No java, but in windose just a click a way. But, what about linux? You will have to type idiotic sudo apt commands in terminal. And it will not work.needless to say. Same with firewalls, linux comes with a firewall. You can give yourself migraine with updating ip-s but all you want to know, is a pop-up, hey mister, that software is calling home. Block? y/n? Now, there exists such a thing. Leopard flower. But it has to be sudo apt assambled! Does not work, of course. Now this is the reason why spoiled brats like me who grew up with windose will never adopt linux. Okay, I did, and I like it, and I fear m$ will continue to get away with making spyware, because of that. Linux sudo apt go -get an installer!
