I tried out Linux Mint earlier this year, started with 16 but it was just around the release of 17 and so I quickly went to that, unfortunately it crapped out on me (probably my fault for not waiting a couple of months while issues got ironed out), and so I abandoned the Linux idea for a while.
Yesterday I installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, and so I now have a few questions:
1. I liked the cinnamon desktop of Mint, is it compatible with Ubuntu (I read that Mint is Debian/Ubuntu based)? Plus how would I get it if so?
2. I know that malware that is Linux based is rare, but it's out there, are there any good day-zero antimalware apps for Linux out there? I know I'm highly unlikely to become infected but I'd like to make myself even less of a target!
3. I'm not a coder or anyone who likes to try and remember hundreds of CLI commands, my area is hardware/networking (studying for CCNA). Is there a good resource out there for quick reference of commands? Particularly pertaining to SNMP diagnostics.
4. Troubleshooting tools, if I am to start recommending Linux to clients in the future I figure that I better damn well make sure I can troubleshoot and fix common problems, any diagnostic tools around at all?
