Hello to All

Postby theweez928 on Thu Apr 07, 2011 12:04 am

Just thought I would introduce myself, my name is Josh and I have been using Linux Mint 10 main for about 2 months now. I decided to give Linux a try about a year ago after my old Windows XP computer decided to get sick and stop functioning. I tried out quite a few distros over the past year, started with Fedora and liked it but found it slightly difficult to manage packages and get everything working properly. Eventually found my way to Ubuntu and stayed there a long time, constantly trying other distros until I found Linux Mint, by far the best for ease of use (especially for beginners). I think I am going to stay here for a while.
