Newly arrived at Mint

Postby jrj350 on Tue Jun 21, 2011 2:54 pm

Hello all,
I am coming off Ubuntu. I started with Ubuntu a few years ago, and liked it very much. But the last two or three releases didn't seem to be what I wanted. Too many problems plus Canonical decided to really shift gears with the last up-grade. It appears many people like the new Ubuntu, but it presented too many problems for me and my HP All-in-One 200. I have been looking at the various distributions and this Mint-Deb seems to be pretty nice. so I installed it. I hope it works out.
