I was quite pleased to read about this users experience: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/591975/my-linux-experience/
This experience reflects what I would hope to accomplish. However, I am not very computer-literate but not so old as not to try new things, lol. I am capable of following direction but have become confused about various tutorials regarding Linux.
Everyone has their own opinion about Linux and that is as it should be. For a real novice this has become problematic as I am looking for a OS that is relatively easy to install and understand. Some user-friendly programs mentioned was Linux Mint-cinnamon.
I am respectfully requesting assistance from those of you who are most knowledgeable in this area. Quite frankly, I am at a loss where to begin. Tried linking to some tutorials and reading but the more I read the more confused I got (not hard for me, lol).
I have always found answers to my questions and extremely helpful assistance here at BC and am very grateful for this site which I probably haven't said enough.
Thanks in advance for any thoughts and suggestions.
