Postby rawrmonster on Tue Oct 12, 2010 11:39 am

Hey guys I'm not really new to Linux been Windows free for almost 2 years now, but just moved from Ubuntu to Mint. So far it is a really great OS and i think that the little pictures in the Terminal window are great addition as well. Anyway have fun and learn lots :P!
