Hi everyone. I am not a new Linux user, nor even a new Linux Mint user. I have used various distros over the last 15 years. I currently use Linux Mint 17 (primarily with KDE), OS X, and Windows 7 for various reasons. I started with MS-DOS 2, so I have been using computers for a while. I thought I would join the forum to interact with other LM users about this great OS. Last week, I upgraded from LM 13. I want to learn more about shell scripting, as I can see they are much more powerful than DOS/Windows batch files. I am recently retired due to a disability, and my last few jobs involved a lot of advanced modeling in Microsoft Excel. Now I can spend time expanding my skills. I am 61 years old, but still young at heart and very tech literate, and enjoy technology a lot.
I live in beautiful Colorado, and hope to both learn and contribute here.
