Short intro..

Postby PingusDB on Fri Jul 01, 2011 3:09 am


A year on the forum, but forgot to introduce myself... oops :oops:
Been using Linux a long time (even though I first was a BSD user..), Slackware Linux has been long time my favourite, yet the ease of use of Mint Linux (particularly on the multi media side) made me change permanently. (have tried pretty much all other distro's (did my Red-Hat certification etc.) but they never made me leave my dear old Slackware box.

Anyway, that's more then a year now.

Will make some donations on regular basis to keep Mint develop itself further and further (there are still some improvement points :wink: ).

Next to being a Linux nerd I like to race cars (and drift 'm), and take some off-road routes every now and then. They call that a Petrolhead in the UK I believe :lol:

Welcome PingusDB. Since you've been around for so long, I guess there isn't much I need to clue you in on.
