I have been using Mint for around 7 months now thanks to a crashed laptop (just about 3 months old and the windoze gave me the BSOD )and really wish to thank Bill Gates and his team for making it easy to get totally turned away from M$ when they told me that to get my laptop repaired I would have to buy the OS from them and then install it fresh.I started looking at various distros and found Mint 9 .WOW what a refreshing change not only did I save a bundle of money ,but found something in it that was fun ...being able to work with my computer not on it. I am very much a newbie to the whole computer scene as I picked up my first computer in 2007 at the age of 48 years .My first unit was an IBM thinkpad M21 with XP installed and had reasonable success with learning about computers although now as I look back,I wish somebody had told me about Linux then. I would probably still be using that old brick considering it had 512 MB of ram and a 20 GB HDD can we say SLOW?!? The laptop that replaced it was an eMachines E625 with 1GB ram and 160GB HDD that my wife currently uses(it is the one mentioned earlier).I have since moved to a Dell inspiron 1525 laptop with 4GB ram and 320 GB HDD.another laptop that was destined to become landfill if my daughter hadn't given it to me.My home is pretty much microslop free except for one PC that is set up as a dual boot ,XP/Linux 9 KDE(presently).
In a perfect world everything has it's place, Linux on my computer, windows on the wall, and M$ in the trash!
CrunchBang, LMDE, Mint 9 ,Peppermint Hackintosh and a few others
