Joe Collins worked in radio and TV stations for over 20 years where he installed, maintained and programmed computer automation systems. Joe also worked for Gateway Computer for a short time as a Senior Technical Support Professional in the early 2000’s and has offered freelance home computer technical support and repair for over a decade.

Joe is a fan of Ubuntu Linux and Open Source software and recently started offering Ubuntu installation and support for those just starting out with Linux through EzeeLinux.com. The goal of EzeeLinux is to make Linux easy and start them on the right foot so they can have the best experience possible.

Joe lives in historic Portsmouth, VA in a hundred year old house with three cats, three kids and a network of computers built from scrounged parts, all happily running Linux.

In this video I walk you through doing an OEM install of Linux Mint 18.1. The method will allow the person who gets the machine to create a personal account when they boot it up for the first time.

Please be sure to give EzeeLinux a ‘Like’ on Facebook! Thanks! Also check out http://www.ezeelinux.com for more about Linux.

This video was inspired by Ez Sit on YouTube. He posts a lot of fun computer related videos. Cheek out his channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQrSHD-tv9nkssrD4nNGcMw

More great Linux goodness!
