    Hi I'm just starting to learn about Linux. I'm thick as mince though, thought I was quite pc literate but turns out I'm not. I have no coding experience and am struggling with Linux. This is after donkeys years as a windows user. I've came to the conclusion that I don't like the way windows takes over my laptop and crams it full of stuff I don't want. I'm hoping to find answers and help on this forum. So I'll probably spend the next few weeks going through the site looking for help

    Hi @msocsci, and welcome! We all had to start somewhere, and we know it can be a little daunting at first to get going with Linux. But we will help you along the way as much as we can. You will spend most of your time in a graphical desktop that doesn't look too much differrent from Windows, but don't be afraid of command line... folks who offer help will often provide some commands that you can copy and paste into a terminal to help get information or solve problems.

    Cheers
