Hello Everybody!..

Postby MartinBear on Sun Feb 06, 2011 8:09 pm

Thought I'd come and say hello before heading over to the newbie help section :lol:


My name is Martin and I'm a 32 year old guy from Warwickshire in the UK. I'm completely new to Linux really, but thought I would give Mint a spin as of late Windows 7 was driving me to distraction with its inability to perform simple tasks such as deleting a file without using a 3rd party "unlocker"! So far, I'm really pleased with it - I've got all my usual programs running (or their equivalents) and I've got a new toy to play with :D Anyway, pleased to meet you all and hope to see you around.
