Found my distro of choice.

Postby dab1414 on Mon Feb 07, 2011 5:29 pm

Hello to all, I started to dabble into Linux 4 years ago. took a hiatus for about 2 years, now back the last year fully separated from Windows. I had started with Ubuntu and learned a bunch of information from all of the community out there. So recently I decided to search for what my Distro of choice is going to be. After about 4 or 5 months of downloading and installing and testing I found Linux Mint 10 to be my favorite. Just this last weekend I downloaded LMDE and in the process of deciding what my main distro will be from now on. And to my shock, my father-in-law (severely computer illiterate) is stepping down from windows, another project for me. But I enjoy learning new things and want to thank all the Linux community out there, for everything I have learned, and that which I learn from now.

You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.
