Hello all...New to forum

Hello All…New to Linux at a late age…Ma Box looks very interesting…I install it to an older desktop I had put up…I normally like a clean desktop and haven’t figure out how tp remove the side panels yet or how to put the top panel/taskbar on the bottom in auto hide mode…I really hope this will be the distro I say good bye to Windows OS ???..I have Windows 10 and Linux Mint 20.2 Mate on my main desktop…Sharing a 2 TB hard drive…The main reason I stay with Windows is our iPhone(s)…A lot easier to do thing via Windows…Well , I just wanted to say hi to all…Please take care and be safe out there…Later
