A new mint user living in australia! I'm currently using Linux Mint Maya (64Bit) with the cinnamon Desktop. Currently studying CCNA Exploration 4, RedHat RHCE, VMware VCA and Ethical Hacking.
After starting to study Linux at Uni (Redhat6.3), It got me more interested in Open-Source software and Operating Systems. In one of my first courses i learnt how to use Ubuntu mainly from the terminal, But after trying Ubuntu i couldn't get used to the Unity Desktop. I found Linux mint and haven't looked back, It's an awesome OS alternative to Windows. I Only keep a windows machine for study and gaming, But i use the linux machine as much as possible. The Hardware compatibility is great on Mint as well, all i needed was the nVidia driver for my GPU.
I have a few other hobbies other than Computers and IT, Some include Home / Car Audio, Cars, motor-racing and DIY Projects (Audio or Electonic).
In the IT streams i am most interested in Networking, Virtualization and Linux.
I hope to contribute back to the mint community and learn more from it as well.
