If I switch to Linux do I have to type commands?
Ubuntu and Linux Mint the user never has to use the terminal if they don't want to. Everything can be set up and customized just by clicking and selecting. The graphical user interface is well developed and you can use your mouse for everything you need. Even installing applications is pretty easy. In the past and even today some of the Linux distributions are not user friendly. These distributions are geared towards individuals that are familiar wiht GNU/Linux so if you are new to Linux just stay away from them. We highly recommend Ubuntu and Linux mint if you want to install GNU/Linux on your computer. These two distributions are very easy to use and require minimum tweaking to get you up and running. GNU/Linux has come a long way in the last few years and currently it is very user friendly. If you need additional help there is a lot of information on the Internet for beginners about Linux. So take the plunge and discover a great operating system and thousands of free applications that you can install.
