This Forum is Great!

Postby donnwest on Sat Jul 28, 2012 2:57 pm

I'm brand new to Linux, and started by replacing Windows 7 with Mint Cinnamon. I'm a very long-time DOS/Windows user, and am muddling through a cold-turkey switchover.

In less than a week, I've found the answers to at least a dozen questions in the pages of this forum. All but one were located by searching, and the one question I posted was solved in short order.

Thanks for a terrific resource!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Hi Donn, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums!

Be sure also to check out the Community website (tutorials, hardware and software reviews, ideas), and the Cinnamon Spices website for adding even more themes, applets and extensions to Cinnamon.

You can also chat in real-time with other Linux Mint users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users.

Have fun with Linux Mint :wink:
