How you guys doing?
I thought it would be a bit more polite to make in intro post before asking for all sorts of technical help, so here it is!
I'm new to Mint, but I've been using Kubuntu for about two years, maybe a bit more. (Don't know why I didn't switch from Windows earlier!)
I just bought myself a new, shiny, swish computer (I've been using computers made from begged, borrowed and stolen parts all my life and I finally wanted something brand new), and while I was at it I thought I'd try out a different linux distro to what I've been using. I'd heard a lot of good things about Mint, so here I am now! I'm using the KDE version (I like the eye-candy and I find it's a bit further removed from Microsoft Windows than most of the other desktops) and I'm very happy with it.
While I have been using linux for a few years now, I definitely wouldn't consider myself an expert to any degree. I knew my way around MS products quite well, especially DOS, but I still feel quite lost in the mechanics of linux.
Anyway, I'm sure I'll enjoy my stay here, and I'll see you guys around!
