Tell a man how to go "Incognito" and that he'll be completely virus free, and you'll have a lot more Linux converts. Just don't do it in front of his wife, parents, or children. Best to discretely...

I've found the XFCE and KDE versions of Mint to be "glitchy". Weird things happening and stuff. Mint is best when used with Mate or Cinnamon.
