Just wanting to say hello and express excitement.

Postby Lysias on Mon May 12, 2008 12:10 am

I would simply like to say hello to everyone in these forums.

I have been monitoring threads and using Mint Linux for around 2 months now and I must say that I am overly excited of what's to come.The community appears to be strong and above all friendly.It has been quite a long time since I found my self a proper forum in which I could simply enjoy reading everything that's going on.Most of the online communities nowadays are swamped by arrogant little creatures which most of the time have no idea of what they are talking about.I could easily point out to some of them so people could stay clear of but I wouldn't want to go into this anti-advertising mood. :roll:

The project is seeming to be picking up speed at a frantic pace considering the vast amount of new users that are being attracted.I have been around linux for some time now and I must say that I the work being done here is quite incredible and want to encourage the developers to keep up whatever they have on plans.Ease of use and above all stability and security are the foundations of something that could be really special in the ever-lasting battle of distributions.

I would also like to say thank you to all the hard work being done both on support and the OS itself.Again keep it up and be sure that you have +1 fan sticking around for a long time.

Take a look up about three posts - hint. :wink:
See you around,

Lysia,

Nice to officially my your acquaintance mamm. :-)a

I saw after I posted that "Lysia" is a name of the feminine persuasion. I apologize for calling you sir. Its a habit, sorry.

Hope you will hang around and feel free to jump in and help when you can and feel so inclined. There are many new users arriving every day that are not steeped in the Linux ways. There is always something to do, and someone that needs help.

Enjoy your stay mamm.

Actually your initial approach was the one that was correct dear Fred.

Lysias is an ancient greek name reffering to male individuals. :wink: .

I really had the urge to correct this one in the sake of misunderstanding. :roll:

Looking forward to even more replies.

Lysias,

Color me slightly embarrassed, with a considerable amount of egg on my face. :-)

Again my apologies sir.

Thank you everyone for your kind comments.

I will be trying to help anyone whenever I can and if my knowledge allows me to.Maybe some questions posted in the forums will raise curiosity to dig even deeper to the amazing world that is Linux. :)

@GrayWizardLinux:

I'm sure Fred now after having put on his glasses is at his top shape once again. ;) Only kidding here. :)

Again thank you for your warm welcoming.

@Husse
Yes it is a self portrait indeed.!It's actually only a couple of days ago that I took the photo just after my new eye-surgery..!! :D

And if you actually observe my facial expression you can understand that I was at the time spelling the word "w00t" ! :P
