Very true.  :-X

I've started using Linux Mint in preparation for my windows 7 pc packing in. It looks a bit dated and I haven't really got my head around it yet, but it's up and running and doesn't update when it wants to  :thumbs:

Linux Mint is smashing.  If it wasn't for the fact that my favourite programs only operate on Windoze I'd use it regularly.

This might help you in that regard

What I have found other than adobe flash which doesn't do well in Mint most other programs have alternatives

That alternatives page is very helpful, Davy.  Thanks.  Although many Linux programs are now also compatible with Windoze I'm still attracted to commercial Windows programs for work with graphics and video.  They have a real edge over Open Source programs.
