Hi everybody

Just wanted to drop in and say hello. I'm in the process of putting Mint 13 (MATE) on my new netbook, and I'm certain I'll have questions. I had Ubuntu 9.04 on my old gateway laptop, really liked it, but it is large and clumsy, and the battery has worn out to the point where it only gets an hour or so on a full charge. So I got my self a cheap little netbook for traveling and work, until I can save up for a better computer, and have discovered that windows 7 basic is rather, well, basic. And somewhat useless. So have decided to give Mint a try. So far I've managed to boot into Mint off of a usb stick, and all my hardware worked right away, which is nice. So my next step is to make with the partitioning and installing this weekend! Wish me luck :)
