Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon desktop
And now say hello to my much neater Linux Mint/Cinnamon desktop. You'll notice that except for having the Menu button on the top left instead of XP's Start button, it looks pretty much like XP. Mint/Cinnamon does more than than that, it also works--left-click to select, double-left-click to run, right-click for properties--just like XP.
WinWord on XP
Here we have a typical Windows XP application--Microsoft Word set to use menus instead of the annoying ribbon. You know it well.
LibreOffice Writer on Linux Mint
And, here we have LibreOffice's Writer application with a document. Notice how "different" it looks from Word? That's right. It's doesn't. It works the same and it can also produce Word-compatible documents.
