Hello from Montreal, Québec,
Long time user, first time poster.
I have been using Linux MInt since LM8 and this distro, amongst all the ones I tried (Ubuntu,Kubuntu,Xubuntu,PCLinuxOS,ArchLinux...) was the one who was the easiest to use and took me, a total noob, by the hand and shown me the wonders Linux could do. Mint has a very special place in my heart since and I left windows, thanks of it. When I say I was a noob, I mean it. I did not knew what ''sudo'' meant. Ouch... It was a fellow friend of mine who introduced me to the LInux community and I don't regret it one bit
I recently was using the windows 7 laptop of a friend and it took me no more than 5 minutes to get mad at it because it kept crashing. LOL
Thank you Mint team for this wonderful distro and I hope to talk with you more soon.
