I love it. New to Linux though. I tried, like, 10 other versions of Linux and this baby hit the sweet spot. Great for users used to Windows.

This is the best Linux distros, its simple, you get thing done fast, its stable as you've never seen. Its compatibility is exceptional, and installing wine to run windows apps work perfectly. This system is mint ;)

I always use the open source Linux Mints OS on my laptops or PCs that don't legally have Windows OS. I think Linux Mints has a pretty bright and modern look and the software is lightweight. However, its features and the software that supports it are not as complete as windows. It's good enough for browsing and offices.

The fact that it's free and open source is reason enough to use it. User-friendly.

Keep coming back to Mint. More-or-less reliable...

Linux Mint is great because you can run it on some pretty old machines. I am currently using a HP Pavilion g6 and loving it. It also looks like Windows 10, which is a plus. Good security, backgrounds, a built-in software manager, and an available panel-mounted resource monitor are some of the reasons to use this OS. You can even play Windows games under WINE, and since Valve released Proton, even more on Steam!

Very good system generally. Recommended for everyone, who wants to have his computer under control, not to be tracked and slowed by foreign supra-national company. More-like Windows than Ubuntu, still quite easy to learn with lots of help all over the internet. Quick and safe, moreover it comes with Synaptic Package Manager, where you'll find useful apps to install without even opening the Terminal. After installing Wine it offers even wider options. Perfect not just as a dual boot system, but as a full-fledged replacement of Win10, which is a crap. R.I.P. Win7.
