Why anything else?

Postby jmikeharvey on Sun Jan 09, 2011 12:28 am

I have used linux in some form or another for many years, mainly as servers. The whole personal desktop just did not really catch on.

I found Linux Mint and I have to say I am very impressed.

I have Mint as my host and XP in virtual box to handle anything that wine does not do well with and I have a GREAT system.

Once linux as a desktop catches on better I hope people move away from Microsucks and people develop for more than just Microsoft

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
