Greeting from NorthWest Pennsylvania

Postby JARHEAD3096 on Wed Aug 27, 2014 10:18 am

I'm a pc repair specialist, with about 4 year experience in troubleshoot. I'm new to linux Mint, i really like the openness of this os. i like how much faster linux runs compared to windows.
the learning curve isn't to bad, i have found that YouTube has a lot of videos on installing and tweaking the os to run the way you want it to. **BONUS** most of the software is free. The down side is gaming, but that is changing slowly. Well thats about it for me. i have found that forums are the best place to get answer for a lot of the issues i run into. Semper Fi everyone 8)
