    Hello everyone!

    Hello all,

    I'm totally new to using any kind of Linux. I've decided to get started so I can learn to use open source design programs and things like OpenFOAM so that I can make myself more employable as an engineer. I've got absolutely no idea where to start so any recommendations would be most welcome!

    Edit: I've done the distro test and it advises that I choose Mint, Ubuntu or Fedora. I've had Mint recommended by someone else so I guess I'll start there!

    Welcome to Linux domain.

    Here's a link to the Ubuntu instructions for installing OpenFoam. Since Mint is based on Ubuntu, Ubuntu instructions should work.
