This tutorial shows how you can set up a Linux Mint 11
(Katya) desktop that is a full-fledged replacement for a Windows
desktop, i.e. that has all the software that people need to do the
things they do on their Windows desktops.
"The advantages are clear: you get a secure system without DRM
restrictions that works even on old hardware, and the best thing
is: all software comes free of charge. Linux Mint 11 is a Linux
distribution based on Ubuntu 11.04 that has lots of packages in its
repositories (like multimedia codecs, Adobe Flash, Adobe Reader,
Skype, Google Earth, etc.) that are relatively hard to install on
other distributions; it therefore provides a user-friendly desktop
experience even for Linux newbies.
