Hi Everyone, from North West UK

Postby philc on Sat Oct 09, 2010 12:23 pm

Hi all,

Fairly new to Linux. Done a lot of GUI based things with Ubuntu and earlier Mint versions.

Recently tried out Mint 9 and got hooked... Currently getting to rips with the CLI. Hopefully will be able to learn enough to allow myself to let go of Windows!

Area of expertise is in WiFi. I am an engineer for a leading enterprise class WiFi vendor based in the United States, but apply my trade mostly in the UK.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
