I came to Mint via Ubuntu.  I like Ubuntu fine but I just don't care for Unity, I prefer Gnome.  I'm not a computer guy,

I'm a Civil engineer, I build roads.  I don't code.  I don't command line, I'm a gui guy.  I inherited my daughter's laptop when we

bought her a MacBookPro.  It was running Vista which I hate with the heat of a thousand suns so I started experimenting with

Linux distros and here I am.  I like Mint and I think I'll keep it for a while.

abiword
"Abiword is my favorite word processor. It has everything I need and more but not too much more. After Google Chrome and Thunderbird, the first tool out of the box."
