Hello everyone. I had a friend several years ago who was a die-hard Linux user. He would tell me how much better Linux was than Windows, and then later in the conversation I would hear about his war stories about getting drivers and devices to work in Linux, so I decided Linux was probably not for me. Now, I am an EE student and some of my future classes will deal with Unix network administration. So I decided to go ahead and get some Linux experience so I might have a heads up when I start using Unix.
I started off with Fedora just because I think I read somewhere that it was supposed to be an easy distro for Windows users to get used to. I then switched to Ubuntu, just to see what the differences were. I did not notice a whole lot. I read some reviews about Mint and decided to give it a try. Windows is still my primary OS, mainly just because I have not been able to do everything that I need to for school with the Linux distros. I am downloading Mint as I type this, and I am planning to overwrite the Ubuntu partition with it.
Anyway, it is great to be here and I hope you guys have some patience for the noob questions that I will be asking in the future. Nice to meet all of you and I hope to get to know you all better.
