Hi there, please allow me to introduce myself into this community...
I've bin a Linux user for a long long time. Not considered a guru or anything, just a daily user with some beginner experiences.
I've bin using laptop as my main machine for more than 10 years. My last laptop is a 4-years-old Sony vaio with a slow ULV
core2duo 1.2Ghz and a slow harddisk (once, I've found out that it's the same harddisk that's used in iPod... no upgrade then)
so my last Linux experience was only with the distro with light weight window manager. I was very impressed with Mint the most though.
And finally, I can afford a new laptop, still Sony Vaio T11 and I didn't hesitate to try Cinnamon Mint 13. A huge new experience
for me as my new machine has 32Gb of SSD for installing OS. Everything 's lightning fast (compare to my old machine). Just
a problem with wireless network card (Intel Centrino 2230) in which its driver didn't get loaded or something. I've found a conflict
in backlist file and solved the problem after 2 days of searching for solution. Everything else works like a charm. Cinnamon is
a huge impress for me. With its extension and applet, along with multitouch trackpad, very happy I am now.
So say hello and thank to the Mint team and this community. You guys rule!!!
