Hello from east yorkshire

Postby adamr8965 on Sun Jan 02, 2011 5:52 pm

Hey guys/girls just joined up this evening,

I'm a virgin mint user and more by mistake than anything else tbh. My dad uses mint and ubuntu on his computers and hardly uses windows.
Anyway my laptop was thrashing the hdd in windows took 20mins to load and about the same to power down.

So I got the mint software and went to install it, which worked so well i managed to delete the windows 7 partition and the "pq" recovery hidden partition aswell.

So now I only have mint and ubuntu as o/s now, so expect a fair few questions from me in the coming weeks.

Cheers Adam.

I am glad that you are a mint user. Sorry about the virgin part, but that will change someday. :D

Just kidding. Welcome and do not hesitate to ask questions. Remember, there is no such thing as a stupid question, there are only stupid people who as questions. :lol:
