Hello all,

I had to stay away from Linux for some time since around Ubuntu adopted Unity. I was really excited to come back to Linux, but was quite reluctant to install Ubuntu and deal with Unity which I find quite hard to be productive in a development environment.

So I decided to give Mint a shot. I've been playing with it for some hours now. Installation was almost seamless, I've set up my base development environment and I can say that I can't wait until tomorrow morning to do some more tweaks.

Things are going well so far (well, may be I should not speak so soon as I will dive in Wine to install Photoshop and MS Office tomorrow ;) ) and I'm glad I have Mint a shot.

Also looking forward to spend some more time in the forums.

Cheers!
Ilker

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Thanks for the welcome.

Despite all my positive comments yesterday, I woke up, started my system and wireless connection decided not to work, out of the blue.

I can trace back the problem and solve it, but that's rather unacceptable in a production environment. If I have done some update or installed something extra or did some tweaking, I would embrace the problem, but when that occurs without a single bit of change injects all kind of doubts into my mind.

I simply cannot tolerate booting up to a disconnected system in the middle of a project with a tight schedule. So, I decided to install Mint on my testing/hobby/play box and move my production environment away from Mint.
