I love this OS!

Postby joking on Thu Jan 20, 2011 8:49 pm

Hi Everyone!, I have been using Julia for some time now and it was the most easy OS I have installed in a long time. Even got my Sirius account set up and working and am able to do anything I have wanted to do with minimal confusion. The auto update feature is working well and I haven't broken it yet so I am one truly happy camper.

Thanks to the great team who put this software out there for us to enjoy!

Welcome to LinuxMint and the Mint Forums.

I bought my first PC from Radio Shack in 1984. :cry: Damn, I'm old.
My first website went on-line in Oct. '92 on what was then, the WorldWideWeb (pre-internet)

So, I had been a Windows user for many a year. But with Linux for the past few years ... about 5 years.
Started with Fedora > Sabayon > Ubuntu > Mint > Debian >LMDE

I am a Registered Architect, in the US, that uses GNU/Linux and Open Source exclusively. :D

^ there are already several established Linux User Groups (LUG) in North Carolina.

I did a search in http://google.com/linux for LUG in NC and several groups in a few different cities popped up. Check them out. :D
