Hi Jojoyee,
What's the difference between being a "beginner" and a "Windows migrant"?
I alwasy thought they're the same.

Just my interpretation:

Beginner being new to the computer; Windows migrant: has been familiar with Windows or knows how to use it, but new to the Linux system and wants to try it out.

Although I use Ubuntu, I'd put Mint at positions 1 and 5 if you see what I mean? But where to put Ubuntu though in that case?

Didn't cross my mind, I guess because most of computers come with one version of Windows or the other installed.

But I see the logic. Thanks Jojoyee.
