Hi from Ivan

Postby ivan_rookie on Thu Dec 09, 2010 11:20 am

So, hello everybody. My name is Ivan :]

I just want to start with the fact I don't know anything about Unix, except for the theoretical basics. I just got tired of the endless Microsoft cr*p and I don't support Apple any more, so I decided to move to Linux Mint 10 x64 w/ Gnome 2.32.0 - now my machine is WAYS faster than ever before! I deleted my Windows partition yesterday, so now I have my whole hard drive for Mint only.

I hope I'll find some nice (and patient) people out here to help me out with my first steps in the Open World. And please excuse my poor English :]
