clueless/need help/direction asap
I recently accquired this laptop, which has Linux Mint 12 as the OS. I have heard of, yet never been exposed to any version of Linux, and am now trying to figure out how to do everything, but the language/wording used is so different from Windows-I AM LOST, and getting aggrevated. Is there anyplace to go for help-such as learning how to use/navigate Linux by comparing to Windows-to facilitate this transitation. Any advice/info would be greatly appreciated, as I am sure I will enjoy Linux much better if I can figure out how to use it!!!
