    Default Canned Linux - for some fun

    Exploring and playing with Linux is fun. But often we dread the effort to setup a Linux distro. To make that easy for you I have uploaded a fully configured and setup Mint Mate 17.1 system to my OneDrive that you can run in VMware Player. Just follow these steps:

    Download the .zip folder with the system from my OneDrive (right click on the tile). The folder is 3GB so it will take a moment to download it.
    Extract Mint Mate folder from the downloaded .zip folder to any place in your system
    Download and install VMware Player - e.g. from here
    Watch my video that tells you how to set it up - for further detail on how to setup the VMware Tools, watch this video.

    Enjoy playing with Mint Mate. If you like to alter some settings, consult the video tutorials below.

    Change the themes and skin
    Start menu and taskbar settings
    Tuning the start menu
    Terminal window setup
    Installing and uninstalling programs
    Screenshots and snips

    That's all.

    You should, it's fun. Once you are past the download (which will take some time) it is a matter of minutes to get going. The fine tuning you can do as you go.
