In an attempt to revitalise an ancient IBM Thinkpad, I decided to download and install Linux Mint. Don't know why; it just seemed like a good thing to do. So I did. And bloody hell, it looks rather spiffing. So fellow drinkers, what are the cool and wonderful things I can do with Mint? What software should I get for things like image manipulation ala Photoshop; or DTP, ala InDesign. I see it comes loaded with Libre Office, so my basic needs are catered for, but what are the essentials I need on my new computer (which struggle under Windows 7, but looks pretty zippy under Mint)?
