Hi Guys,

I think I'm posting in the correct place, if not, let me know. I have an old PC that I want to switch over to Linux. I alreaady have an old PC that I have installed Linux Mint on, and so I think I'd like to try a different version. I'm thinking perhaps Ubuntu or Cinnamon. I am not knowledgable about programming or anthing like that. So I need simple and easy and will take any and all help and assistance I can get. What would you suggest?

Both of your suggestions sound good. Also, consider Kubuntu and Lubuntu. Ubuntu Mate may look different than what you're used to, but it's worth a shot.

Expand and grow, try a different Linux family!
Mageia. Manjaro. Proxmox. PCLOS.
If something other than Mint is desired, then get away from all 'buntu-derived distros, is my suggestion -- try Arch, RedHat, PCLOS, Slackware, Debian and Independents -- it's a big FOSS world out there. Why limit oneself?

Whatever you decide on.....Put the ISO on a thumb drive, boot the PC to that thumb drive and have a play !!

Nothing to go wrong, all good fun.

Tell us the specs etc of the PC first......they will have a direct impact on what you can run

Thanks for all yur great suggestions. I'll have to plug in the old PC and get the specs and post them. I guess I was thinking "ease of use for newbie" as the reason for staying within what I know a little bit about. But I'm open to trying new things so I'll be re-thinking about what to try out next.
