    Sounds very interesting! So is there something similar available for Ubuntu, which seems to be more popular than Mint

      I don't know.
      Mint is the number one Linux and gets nearly twice the hits per day over any other Linux.
      Look half way down the page on the right side and it lists the top 100 Linux Distros.
      DistroWatch.com: Put the fun back into computing. Use Linux, BSD.
      Mint has been #1 since 2010.
      It is my pick, but use whatever you like.

          Ubuntu was the most popular distro for several years and made Linux much more mainstream...but over time they made various changes that put quite a few users off (too many to list here) including the Unity interface which many (including me) have an intense dislike for. Mint is based on Ubuntu (which is in turn based on Debian) and has a simpler interface like Ubuntu did in years past...but FWIW there is an XFCE version of Ubuntu called Xubuntu that also has a simple, clean interface. I used Ubuntu myself for years but now have Mint XFCE on one machine and Xubuntu on another. But in general picking a distro is a matter of personal preference, there are a LOT of them and all the major ones have serious fans and lots of online support via forums...i.e. Arch, Manjaro, Fedora, Open Suse, SolydXK, Ubuntu, Mint, etc... If you want to test drive Linux distros it is easy to do on a PC or Mac using free Virtualbox software.

            Ubuntu was Number one for a long time.
            Until they Came out with the Unity Desktop.
            That is the desktop with the bar and buttons on the Left side.
            That is when they lost out, No-one much likes the Unity desktop.
            Ubuntu is built on Debian.
            In the Ubuntu's there are 5 versions, all controlled by the Ubuntu Group, or Team.
            They are,
            Ubuntu - Unity Desktop
            Ubuntu KDE, or Kubuntu Desktop
            Ubuntu Gnome or Gubuntu Desktop
            Ubuntu XFCE or Xubuntu Desktop
            Ubuntu LDXE or Lubuntu Desktop
            Mint is based on Ubuntu, but has more of the classic Win98, or XP looking Desktop.
            Mint is not part of the Ubuntu Group, but is its own inity, and a separte Distribution.
            They all use the same Debian Package Management Console Command line Messages.
            All of the Ubuntu based systems run on the same code, but It is all about the desktop.
            So that is a little history of where and why Ubuntu lost out to Mint.
            It is IMO, all about the Desktop!
            I currently run Mint, Xubuntu, Gubuntu, and Kubuntu, on my various Laptops.
            But, No Ubuntu with Unity Desktop.
            Of the Ubuntu group of Distros, my Favorite is Xubuntu, with the Xfce Desktop.
            Overall, My Favorite of all the Ubuntu based builds is Mint with the Mate Desktop.

              Robolinux is available for Ubuntu according to this page. Welcome to RoboLinux. I just installed Mint yesterday (dual boot) and so far I don't see any reason to try robolinux, or boot to Windows. Mint is very much like windows, and runs everything I use except the AOL browser. So now I'm getting used to Firefox, and rebuilding my favorites list. Mint found my wireless router and printer, loaded pictures from my camera, and opens pdf files. So far, so good.
              Vote like your future depends on it.

                    What in the heck does that mean?
                    And Where in the heck is PDX, when I search for PDX I get Portland International Airport.
                    Do you live in the Airport?

                      just poking the Penguin...Linus Torvald works in Beaverton and lives near PDX (which can serve as a shorthand for the city the airport is in, except for CVG which isn't even in the same state as the city its named for...)

                      He used to tool around in a yellow AMG Mercedes SLK 32


                      I do work right near the airport...

                        No dweebs here but the internet is crawling with the darned vermin. Their posts almost always include code fragments and very knowing grins.

                        I deal with them on the forums for reprogramming Android devices- I usually can't understand a word that they say. And when they talk in plain English they make assumptions on the knowledge of the readers. Like "just flash the new ROM- duh!" I have questions like is that using the stock recovery or CWM or TWRP? Do I need the file to be on a bootable SD card or will a regularly formatted one work?

                        Fortunately there are some members of forums like XDA and FreakTab who translate all of the Linux/Android bullshit into simple instructions that can be followed by mere humans with a very basic knowledge of Android tablets.

                        I am amazed at how the Android dweebs can write custom ROMs for their Android devices but I prefer it when they do speak or write in English.

                              I guess that was after the seventh day, when you rested?
