Bonjour Hola Hello

Postby kamyar on Mon Mar 24, 2014 3:11 pm

I have some background in IT but I didn't want to play a Unix Admin role at home !
Mint gave me the will to install a Linux on my home computer.

The forums and Google were quite helpful during my migration from an MS environement.
The most difficult parts were :
1./ UEFI /boot/efi
2./ Migration from Outlook to Thunderbird

It is quite easy indeed. My difficulty comes from the fact that I have "MS Windows reflex and behaviour" but I keep learning.
Best regards,
Linux Mint 17 Xfce / UEFI
Intel C847 1.1MHz / ATI HD 6450 / 8 GB DDR3 / SSD 120GB
