New to LM

Postby stalkingwolf on Mon Jul 25, 2011 12:27 pm

Hello all, I'm new around here. I finally talked my wife into leaving windows land last year, but went with Ubuntu 10.10 until she got use to the idea of of Linux. Just switched to LM 11 LXDE because of how resource intensive Ubuntu was on my older laptop, and haven't found anything to complain about with the switch yet! My only regret is that it took so long for my wife to become comfortable with the idea of leaving Ubuntu after it took years of frustration with windows. :mrgreen:
