3 replies 3 views Edited Apr 23, 2007
I got Linux Mint(Ubuntu).

Now what can I do with this? I"m messing around with it abit but I don't really see anything cool.

how do I install stuff...

Whats some really cool stuff linux can do that windows can't?

Btw.

I'm multibooting XP, Vista, and Linux.

I'm just using Linux to test it out.

Read the manual and get comfortable with Linux before you ask simple questions.  Most linux distributions have a highly detailed manual.  If you don't do that, it's going to be hard to get help from people about it.

It's the truth man.  There are wayy to many distributions to give you a simple way to "install" things.  You just have to check it for your distribution.  I've used Linux for quite a long time and there's no "do this" instruction I can give for you.  I've never used your distribution so I can't help you.
 
You can do a lot with linux though you just have to explore it.  The only thing you really can't do that windows can in play DirectX games easily.  There is a work around but very compilcated.
