Install Linux Mint on Your Windows Computer or Netbook


Would you like to try out the popular Linux Mint OS on your Windows computer or netbook? Here's how you can do it even without a CD/DVD drive with the Mint4Win installer.

Linux Mint
Linux Mint is an increasingly popular distribution of Linux, and many users have found it more user friendly and convenient than other versions. Mint is based on Ubuntu, and as such includes an excellent installer that lets you install it directly from Windows. You install it just like a standard Windows program, and can uninstall it from Command Prompt.The installer is only available in a ISO disk image file, though, so it can still be difficult to install on a computer without a CD/DVD drive such as a netbook.  But, with a little trick, you can use the Windows installer for Mint on any PC, no DVD drive required!
