An introduction to Linux in general, and later some specifics on use, customization, and keeping a Linux Mint Cinnamon system updated.

This previously was presented during a Zoom meeting that was interrupted, but we were able to use some of that meeting (Jason's presentation) and we included more information based on questions asked in that initial meeting.
