Hello...

Postby Revenir on Mon Sep 13, 2010 4:38 pm

Was told about this forum by another Linux forum (don't recall just now which one). I'm totally new to Linux. Looking into getting my first home PC. Have decided on a dual-HDD for dual-boot (XP Pro SP2+Linux). Probably either LinuxMint 7 or PCLinuxOS 2010. Will need to know more to decide. I'll use the 'search' first, but still, expect some likely dum questions!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Well, I would suggest Linux Mint 9, as it is the latest release. :D

Hello Revenir, and welcome to the forums. Both of those are great distros, but you can probably guess which one we prefer. :D
