What is Linux?
In the most simple terms, Linux is a computer operating system. It’s the software that enables computer applications and the computer operator to access devices on the computer to perform whatever function is desired. The operating system relays instructions from the application to the processor to accomplish whatever goal has been set out to do. It is, in essence, the nervous system of your computer… sending signals and messages to and from the user and the processor. https://errorbits.com/2017/05/11/introduction-to-linux/

It is now possible to upgrade Linux Mint 18 and 18.1 to version 18.2.
If you’ve been waiting for this I’d like to thank you for your patience.
Upgrading to 18.2 is relatively easy.
In the Update Manager, click on the Refresh button to check for any new version of mintupdate and mint-upgrade-info. If there are updates for these packages, apply them.
Launch the System Upgrade by clicking on “Edit->Upgrade to Linux Mint 18.2 Sonya”.
