I love Linux Mint and I have it installed on my computer!!! I've been using it for 5 years now. It's a lot more stable than Windows and it's very difficult that it gets infected by viruses. I can run many Windows games using Wine (e.g. Tomb Raider 2 or Quake 2). The best operating system ever.

I've started using Linux little over a year ago and love it. I have grown very advanced in Linux (terminal commands and other things such as coding). I've always used Linux Mint because when I typed in Linux, Mint was the first to show up and thought it looked cool. I've tried a Ubuntu for about 45 minutes because it's very slow on older hardware. Zorin was alright but the release I had was pretty buggy.
Home to a very stable and free flavor of Linux. It is good for beginners and experts alike. In my experience, this OS is the only one to run smoothly on older hardware & has quite the supportive community!
