Have you found Midnight Commander?

Most likely it's included in your Linux OS. It's very DOSsy looking but it's handy for things like comparisons if you're referring to file sizes and such. It will calculate folder sizes and provide those too Also, it takes a little bit to understand the working of it but you can rename files very easy with Midnight Commander or regular command line. Especially if you have a lot of files to rename.

The only way to do this easy in Windows is use a third party program.

If you open a command prompt in Linux, just type mc and hit enter. That should start Midnight Commander. It is mouse friendly. Type x and hit enter and Midnight Commander will close.

I need to look into Mint

No, first I've heard of it.

I checked, it wasn't included in Mint. But it was exceptionally easy to get. In the command prompt I just typed in "mc" and it told me it wasn't installed. But if I wanted it, it told me the exact sudo apt get command to get it and bingo! There it was!

Again, I'm not a Linux expert (far from it). The thing I mainly like is that its an easy transition from Win to Linux. The Mininize, Maximize and Close buttons are exactly where they should be so you don't have to relearn. And there's lots of little stuff like that which just make it simple.

And simplicity, at least as far as I'm concerned, is important for newbies to make the transfer from Win to Linux. First, make that transition as easy as possible and then, as time goes on and the newbie becomes more comfortable, they can explore other Linux versions that do more.

But as for me, I'll probably stick with Mint Cinnamon as I really just don't have the tme right now for spending lots of time learning a new OS. Spent years doing that with DOS and Win. Rather be doing something else nowadays.

Write something in Word? On a Linux machine?

Why not write it in Libre Office.. If you need it in "Word" format then the option is there to save file as...

Simple actually. One of the things I do for a living is write. Some publishing concerns (of all stripes) still want any original documents or editing done with MS Word. No exceptions.

So you are correct in that Word doesn't work with Linux but, mainly as an editor, I still have to use Word. So at least for now, I can't get away from the MS OS.

Things are getting better, and Libre Office is a good alternative, but some practices I just can't change. So at least for now Word is a necessity.

But that will change eventually.

Almost missed your last sentence. The problem with using any other word processor is the formatting. That doesn't translate well between apps. So if you BOLD something in Libre that doesn't mean its always going to translate well into Word.

Hopefully, one of these days, that problem will be taken care of. But I'm not holding my breath. MS has this nasty tendency of suing anyone they think is intruding on any of their patents. Another reason I don't like MS.

You could always create a Windoze partition on your machine, and use it only for work: everything else you would do in a Linux environment.

Does WINE work for 64bit Windows yet?

If your windows is 32bit, WINE (Windoze Emulator) will emulate Windoze and allow you to run MS Office inside a Window of your X-environment

Thats exactly what I'm now doing. I still have a Win 7 partition of about 50 Gb and a Linux partition of about 20 Gb. I'm thinking now that the next time I have to delete and reinstall the Win partition I'll cut the Win partition to 40 Gb (or so) and increase the size of the Mint partition.

Although certainly no expert on Mint, I do feel comfortable enough with Mint that I don't think I'll be going back to Win (whatever version). So, at least until I totally retire I will mostly be using Mint but will have to keep MS and Word for work.

I don't know. I do know I'm running a 64 bit version of Mint and have installed Wine (successfully, I think). But I have yet to really play with it. I put Wine on to see if it will work with an old version of AutoCAD but just haven't had the time to install it yet.

And the way things are going I don't think I'll be able to play with that until the snow flies.

WINE isn't an emulator. That's what the acronym stands for. Check with winehq to see what programs are stable in WINE. An application may install perfectly, but certain features may not work. Some Windows application that require NET framework can some what be a pain. You could use Windows in a VM or dual boot.

My go to Linux was Ubuntu. After installing many DE's the performance would degrade. So, then I switched to Arch and haven't looked back. It is a little harder to install (no GUI), but you a better understanding on how Linux operate. Plus, I like pacman and yaourt.
