What is LINUX ? LINUX is an operating system.What is Linux Mint ? Linux Mint is a Linux distribution based on Ubuntu/Debian.Where can we get Linux Mint ? We can get Mint from it's official page here. Select 32-bit or 64 bit editions based on your system configuration and download it, download versions which are atleast 6 months old. Because the user support would be available. Once you have downloaded the Linux distro(iso image), burn it into a pen drive or CD/DVD. We can create a live USB by using UNetbootin. Partition the disk space on your hard disk so as to accommodate Linux, keep the formatted disk space in FAT format. Plug-in the live USB/Bootable CD-DVD into your system and restart the system. Press F2(windows users) and follow the installation instructions on the screen. After completing the installation plugin to the internet, at times there would be wi-fi issues because of driver inavailability. It can be resolved by following the instructions on this page. Linux offers a wide avenue for developers, moreover it's a Free-distro, anyone can use it. It has a community which can be followed at this page.  There is askubuntu to resolve issues related to ubuntu/linux. So, open Terminal and start working. $ Welcome to LINUX
