Hello! MD Terp living in South Florida

Postby bilbojr on Thu Jan 06, 2011 3:13 pm

Hello everyone,

Excited about joining this community. I have joined here and the Ubuntu forum. Have always been a 'tinkerer' with Windows and messed with Linux on the rare occasion but never really spent any time with it
.
Now I have finally decided to quit Windows 'cold-turkey' because I have a couple computers and I don't feel like messing with another new OS, the cost and the drm of using it on different systems, etc... so, here I am!

I have to be honest, I had only tried Ubuntu until recently because it seemed the 'most-similar' to Windows. Now I have a live CD for about 5 distros and I have Mint and Ubuntu installed on my home machine ~ using Mint as my main install. I am liking it for the most part. I have had some issues with Wine and gaming but a decrease in my gaming time is probably not a terrible thing! :? I did get Starcraft going on the first try, so I was pretty excited about that.

Anyhow, I love to mess with my computer to see what I can get away with. I think I have installed these OS's about 20 times in the past few days and I am having a blast. Wish I would have taken some computer classes in college (U of MD, CP) but I look forward to learning this new (for me) frontier.

Can't wait to be one of the people offering help instead of begging for it :D

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Welcome to the Mint forums Bilbo. You will find a lot of information and help from some very enthusiastic and knowledgeable Mint users. I'm sure you will also want to visit our Mint Community Website at http://community.linuxmint.com/. You will find real-time help in our IRC channels. Just go to Menu>Internet>XChat IRC and when you open it you will automatically be taken to our #linuxmint-chat and #linuxmint-help channels. Have fun with Mint.
