Hi all. I'm an on/off Mint user for about three years, deciding recently to start using it more often as the imminent doom of Vista 2.0 becoming the end-all-be-all replacement for XP draws ever closer. (Yeah, Windows 7 was not my idea.) I dabbled in Ubuntu before deciding to go to Linux Mint. I stuck with it for a few reasons.
a.) Driver support (both proprietary and non) at the time was working a lot better for me in Mint than in Ubuntu, even though Ubuntu itself is a great distro.
b.) I found it a little easier to use.
c.) It's Irish. (I'm not, but I have ancestry therein.
I still consider myself very much a newbie, but I aim to remedy that as time goes by. I'm no stranger to systems outside of Windows as I grew up on Commodore and Atari computers before getting my first PC. Coding in BASIC... ah, the memories.
My interests include metal music, fantasy and sci-fi books, emulation and retrogaming, psychological horror, and paranormal and weird stuff. And that's me in a nutshell. Or a chocolate mint wrapper.
