I've just jumped over to Mint!
I'm not exactly a Linux newbie. I've had Ubuntu running on wubi since 2011, Debian since April and am proud to say I've compiled my own Linux From Scratch system from source! I'm a distro-slut and have tried everything from Bodhi to Arch on Virtualbox!
But I'm over here on Mint as my primary operating system-for what I hope will be quite some time!
The reason being that I'm one of those people who loves the 'geekiness' of Linux but also are fanatic of elegant UI design! And Mint seems to be doing it right at the moment.
So that's around it. Hope I can be a help around here as well as learn a lot:)
Nice to meet you all
