The first thing to do is read through the tutorial very carefully - and preferably more than once. This is not a trivial GUI procedure like the Fedora upgrade was, or like many of the previous Mint upgrades have been. It requires use of CLI commands, and those commands produce positively scary amounts of text output. It takes a relatively long time to perform the complete upgrade by Linux standards (it's done in a flash by Windows upgrade standards), and it is not entirely automated, so it will require manual intervention numerous times along the way.
Gradio is a great little open-source desktop radio player app for Linux — and it just got even better.

So I've decided to install Linux on my workstation, albeit it will be dual booted as there's a few bits and pieces on Windows I use, but I want to use Linux, so I was wondering with all the versions available, which should I use? People say Linux mint, others say stay the hell away from it, some say Ubuntu, kubuntu, etc etc. But what would a good load up be in your opinion?
Thanks in advance for any insight you guys may have, seems a little daunting to start using a new OS, but it seems easier now that ever to get into it.
