Hello new to Linux mint :)

Postby Thongar on Mon Sep 24, 2012 12:55 am

Hello,

I've been using Linux ever since I grabbed a book on Redhat Linux 5 back in 1997 and fell in love with the OS. Been using it ever since, been distro hopping for quite some time, from doing the arch linux install, bootstrapping Gentoo, debian sid. So far I am quite enjoying Linux mint Cinnamon 13. Easily a distribution I could recommend to family and friends a like. I'm a network admin/in house technical support for a local company and have been converting them over to linux the past few years almost have it all open source they still need one piece of proprietary software Lightworks but that is soon coming to linux and I am looking forward to that.

I hope I can use my knowledge to help out in the forums, or in irc.

Seems like a lovely community ^.^

Hi Vincenzo, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums! Sounds like you'll bring a lot of experience 8)

Be sure also to check out the Community website (ideas, tutorials, and hardware and software reviews), 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
