Hello everybody, I'm delighted to see such a great community here.
My name is Tom, I'm a Hungarian guy born and living in Romania; trying to become a teacher of English in some elementary school around here, so I don't have much in common with IT.
I've been using Linux Mint (10 Lxde) for.... erm.... 4 hours? Maybe 5. So far so good. It's much 'friendlier' with my laptop than the Vista it came with, it even extended the life of my old battery with almost 50%
and I guess the CPU is happier too.
Of course I kept the Windows too, just in case I do something stupid in Mint
For the time being I'll just keep trying to get used to it and figuring out what does what. Be prepared for really basic questions
