I currently have and use (off and on) a Live DVD of Linux Mint 17.2 Raphael Cinnamon. I know I could update. However I wanted to slowly transition from Windows to Linux and this distro was recommended for getting my feet wet. I was going to purchase a refurbished PC and use it exclusively for Linux but current circumstances will not allow. I know many members here dual boot and I have considered doing so but I've got to tell you that it makes me very apprehensive. I am not that computer literate and afraid of messing up everything.
I know to make sure I have backups and I do. But boy, this is a big plunge for me
I found this tutorial and seems very good. Thoughts? https://sites.google.com/site/easylinuxtipsproject/mint-install
My current PC is nine years old and I have a Epson NX-110 series printer. It works just fine for my purpose. Will installing Linux along side Windows 7 affect the printer? Will I have to find and install new drivers? Will this cause any problems with the printer and Windows 7?
These are my specs:http://i.imgur.com/RLVImZA.png
Will check back tomorrow for recommendations.
