Linux Mint is a free and open source distribution of the popular operating system. Designed to be user friendly and work straight out of the box, the distribution brings the flexibility of Linux to all users.

First step

With a reputation for difficulty and high technical understanding, Linux is often regarded as something far too complex for most users. The free operating system offers a whole range of benefits including more privacy, complete control and custom programs but is more difficult than a traditional OS. Linux Mint aims to help correct these issues by offering a more user focused version of Linux that works immediately with many of the features users require. The service has been specifically created by the open source community for everyone to use, and has been downloaded millions of times. Linux Mint is a great stepping stone for those interested in the OS as it comes with a huge range of help and support from the community, including advice on software installation and user guides. While it still requires some general understanding, the distribution is an impressive creation from dedicated fans.

Happy to help

Linux Mint is a helpful first step to understanding Linux or as a simple free operating system. The guides and tutorials cover nearly every element of the build and the active community is always willing to help.
