@deasun great to hear it! All the best for that very sensible and sustainable move... keep the fediverse up to date on your progress!
@deasun Mint is a very easy OS to use. My wife, who is far from a techie uses it daily without problems.
But I'm not sure I'll recommend it for activists because of privacy : it's based on Ubuntu, which is a private corp (Canonical).
Maybe LMDE (the Debian edition of Mint) could do, but if privacy is mandatory for sensible datas or actions I'd recommend Tails on a USB key.
@Chingachcook many thx for the advice. Mint should do the job for daily usage. Anything sensitive will need extra precautions as you say. Will be sure there are no illusions that way
