I'm Kinda New to This...

Postby srhode14 on Mon Sep 24, 2012 4:45 am

Hello everyone,

and thanks for having such a great tool in this forum for newcomers like myself to learn and enjoy the Linux experience. I recently took a dive, and deleted Windows 7 from my Lenovo laptop. I'm now proud to say that Linux is the only OS on my machine, and for that reason I'm very interested in learning the ins-and-outs of the OS. I'm a college student aspiring to become an IT professional, and the benefits of Linux were too vast for me to continue putting off using it as my daily driver. The learning curve hasn't been that deep for me, but its always a process. I look forward to getting some answers to my questions, joining the community, and maybe with enough knowledge answering a few questions for people in the same spot that I am in now. Thanks for your time, and greetings from North Carolina!

Hi srhode14, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums!

Be sure also to check out the Community website (ideas, tutorials, and hardware and software reviews), and if you picked Cinnamon as your desktop environment then also 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.
