Hi All, New Mint User from Africa

Postby VaughanZA on Tue Jan 22, 2013 2:36 am

Hi Everyone

I am VaughanZA, currently reside in South Africa. For many years I have used Linux on and off; switching between Windows and Mac OS X. Used to be a big Suse fan from back when it was still Suse 7.2 Pro and eventually moved onto Ubuntu.
I have used Linux Mint a couple of times before, however the latest Cinnamon version is quite excellent.

Currently struggling at work with Fedora 18 (shivers) spending half my time fixing the OS; I have already migrated my laptop on Mint 14, next will be my Desktop Machine/TV PC at home and then finally my work machine.

I look forward to getting to know the community and assist in any way possible.

All my best

VaughanZA

Thanks for the welcomes; I couldn't survive any longer with Fedora 18 (4 days enough).
Granted I realise it is a cutting edge distro; which is incredibly quick. However the general support and stablity I will rather stick with Mint
