    Default Since I had nothing else to do, I made these Linux Mint Mate tutorials - enjoy

    Since I did not have much to do, I thought it would be fun to explore other operating systems. After all, with the recent developments in Windows, you never know where this will end up.

    I looked at a variety of Linux distros. They have an adorable price of $0 and are easily installed in VMware player. In the past, I had already used Fedora and Ubuntu plus a few other smaller distros. The new Ubuntu with the Unity UI I did not like. Zorin was the first distro with which I had fun. Then I switched to Mint Cinnamon which is pretty nice but I finally settled for Mint Mate, the Nadia edition. That is a really nice operating system highly customizable which should suffice for any average user.

    So I produced a small set of video tutorials that explain how to setup Linux Mint Mate. The first 6 videos cover the following subjects :

    Basic setup after installation
    Refining the Theme and Skin
    Start Menu and Taskbar settings
    Terminal window setup
    Installing and uninstalling Programs
    Screen Recording

    In addition there is a link to a PDF with the topic : Installation of Mint Mate in VMware Player. This section contains a written tutorial and three videos.

    If you are interested in the subject, download the control sheet (a PDF) from my Skydrive.


    Full link for the PDF:

    You are right Anand. That link does not work. I cannot update the posting from here. Can you do that for me please. Here is a link that should work:

    PS: the reduced version looks like the same link. But then you don't see what's in the middle of the link.
