Linux Mint 18.1 Serena, 10 top things to do ..

My 'text based" Unix journey started in 1988 at Govt. College of Engineering, Goa, though my computer experience started much earlier on the IBM Main Frame computer at Govt College of Engineering, Trivandrum (CET) in 1983. (CET was one among the very few engineering Colleges in the country, especially in s0uth India besides IISc and Anna University, Guindy to have an IBM Main Frame ). My Gnu/Linux journey started around 1996 before going to IIT Bombay. Since then there has been no looking back. Its been Linux, Linux and Linux all the way. Solaris at IITB was again a great experience ..

My Gnu/Linux journey was interesting .. With great support from Richard Stallman of the Free Software Foundation, earlier it was Redhat, Debian, Mandriva, Fedora, Knoppix,  and then came Ubuntu. From Ubuntu 12.1, I recently migrated to Ubuntu 16.1 and then to Linux Mint 18.1 Serena on my laptop. A big jump, but very cool and comfortable .. The beauty with Gnu/Linux is that once you start working, there is no going back to any other OS.

Linux Mint 18.1 is a very easy and configurable distribution (Ubuntu based) ..

Here is the list of things one needs to do to have a terrific experience on linux mint ...

Good Luck ..
