    I wish to migrate from Windows, but find LINUX, even Mint 16, discouragingly user-UNFRIENDLY. For example, “download the sources, Install Bleachbit: Fix the dependencies: To launch Bleachbit, use:…”. No indication of how to download, where to download from and to, where and how to enter and execute the convolulted command lines, how to “use …” to launch. Under Windows this is intuitive. Quo vadis LINUX ???

    Please direct me to a full list of instructions. If there are sites which facilitate the transition from Windows to Linux, please give me links. Many thanks !
