I know that Linux is around for quite some time now. I tried it in the past, multiple times. But the issue is that you intrinsically prefer to stick to what you know and it used to look like not much you’ve wanted to touch for miles. That’s changed recently with pretty great looking alternatives to Windows (and not only XP). This is how I got one of my systems rigged up (pretty basic).
You see the Counter-Strike icon up there? Classic, now on a Linux system near you (an old XP machine that don’t like the taste of Windows 7 maybe!?).
Stay tuned for tips and tricks. More information about Linux mint
