Hello all, it is a pleasure to be here! Like many others I got fed up with the all the spyware/virus/defag - checking in windows. Though, Windows 7 worked fine for me, I first installed Linux (was actually Ubuntu 188.8.131.52 LTS) a few days ago out of curiosity and it was love at first boot I did switch to Mint for its user friendliness though. I'm eager to learn and things are running slick so far.
I actually switched to Linux because I'm a bit of a power user when it comes to ROM swapping and such on Android and looked to this to get my toes wet before starting some Dev work there. Still working out some kinks, but here's to rockin in the free world!
