Hello everybody. Yet another Mint newbie.

Postby minty-D on Mon Aug 09, 2010 11:43 pm

Just wanted to say hello. Loving Linux Mint 9 on my EeePC.

I have to say I've tried other distros and was always frustrated about not getting my all-in-one printer to work. I gave up for awhile.
Well now I try Linux Mint and my printer was plug-and-play and I got my scanner to work (Epson Stylus CX8400). Never happened for me on any Linux before so I'm very happy.

Green is my fav color so I liked Mint immediately. It's been pretty easy too, coming from Windows but ready to dump it. Now I think I can (well, except for Netflix streaming movie access but hopefully that will happen someday soon).

Great to be here and learn from all your wisdom.

Oh, no . . . not 'another' Mint newbie.

You probably want that 'outta the box' experience that Mint is so famous for. :P
