I've been using Ubuntu for about 2 years and I'm have been member of the forums there for about that long. I've been recommending Mint to potential Linux users for at least the last year, but for some reason I've refused to switch until now. Well... I did have SOME reason. I was waiting for a 64 bit that Mint seemed to be sure of. I posted a question on the other site, was asked , why don't you ask the Mint forums and so here I am. I hear great things about this community and as a Linux beginner I hope that everyone is patient with me.
Nice to meet all of you!
