I am now running Linux Mint 18 XFCE edition. This is a lighter Linux desktop distro which means it performs faster without sacrificing style. The operating system came loaded with the things I need to be productive and to be able to do a lot of cool stuff. One great thing about Linux is that you can make it your own by customizing the look and I did just that. I am pleased with the way things look and function. Open Source Technology like this can be a lot of fun and it doesn’t cost you anything.
