I have been using Linux since about 1983 off and on. I have never been able to actually keep using it as something always came up forcing back to Microsoft. Usually I needed a program that Linux did not have and with only one computer, you know the answer.
But I just bought an Acer Chromebook 15 and put Linux Mint (KDE) on it. I really enjoy it.
Since I am really a novice Linux user, I will be putting up notes here of what I have learned.
