Hey from NZ

Postby MattDobson on Sun Dec 12, 2010 3:47 am

Hi everyone, normally I am lurking around at the Ubuntu forum but I thought I would try the latest Mint, and I must say I am pretty happy with it.

I am from New Zealand and I am a Metalhead. I think that explains me in a nutshell. I am normally straight to the point and this is clearly no exception :).

I don't know a lot about Ubuntu\Mint\Linux but I will try to help as much as I can. Thanks for having me.

Welcome to LinuxMint and the Forum - the friendliest forum on the internet. I, too, am from New Zealand (Henderson) and have been using Mint since v3.0 Cassandra. At present I use Mint - LMDE and can't see myself changing, although I did give Julia a whirl.

Welcome to LinuxMint and the Mint Forums.

I few years back I spent an extended holiday (7weeks) backpacking my way around NZ.

Had a blast, met some great people. NZ was prettier than I could have imagined.
