Back to Linux - Cosmin from Germany

Postby cos667 on Tue Sep 25, 2012 4:15 pm

Hi all,

After almost 2 years i decided to try again an Linux Distro that still use the very practical and classical interface
that i've liked and used on Wind. and Linux since years (left Panel/Taskbar buton, central point to start and so on...)
The nice and practical experience Linux Mint offered inside the VM was impressing for me during the 2 weeks of testing :)

Secondly, i decided to join the happy colleagues at work that use Red Hat Enterprise 6.3 (Open Client),
and therefore i've noticed directly how much the main Linux Distros have evolved
(fyi: i work for IBM as Wintel System Engineer since 4 years therefore working mainly Winzows the entire day)

The third reason was for me was the direction in which the competition is heading... after testing for around 3 weeks Win8 and latest Ubuntu version.
One of the most annoying detail for me was "the Touch" discovering that if i like to increase my hand muscles i go to gym, i don't need any 27" inch touch screen... :)
On smartphones is ok... on tablets is ok... but if they bring that to Desktop PC users or Server Administrators they will "burn in flames" and loose a lot of money.


Thanks.
Perfect is not good enough.

Hi cos667, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D And welcome to the Linux distro for desktops and laptops; no touchy interfaces here. 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.
