Any words of wisdom for a newbie getting ready to install linux mint and delete windows?

If I would install a Mint and decide to remove windows completely? I will just make sure I back-up any important data in windows first and just install Mint right away.nujinini

These days the chance of data loss during partition resize are low but still ... back up user data first (photos, your documents etc)
btw unless you have run Linux before I would setup a dual boot first ... that way you can still use Windows if you need to.

Hello and welcome!
As already suggested, have a backup of your Windows system just in case you should need it later for any reason, then:
download and burn the Mint ISO file to disk as an image
boot your computer with the newly created installation disk
follow the self-guided menu for completing your new installation
enjoy your new Linux system
Post back should you run into any issues.oz
