Hello from a new Mint user

Postby Spurs_Fan_21 on Tue Feb 22, 2011 10:46 pm

Just dropping in to say hello. I've been using Ubuntu for years...yadda yadda. I don't like their direction anymore.

Let's just say I dropped Ubuntu and I've been really enjoying running LMDE for the last month or so. It is a wonderful distribution. I would like to thank everyone who helped make it possible. Fluxbox edition has also been excellent. I've been using Linux for years and I'd thought I would never be able to replace Ubuntu. Boy was I wrong.

Welcome to the Mint Community Spurs_Fan.

LMDE is a nice distro, isn't it? I'm glad you enjoy it and the Fluxbox edition.
