Hello everyone. I've been tinkering with different Linux distros for a few years now using primarily Kubuntu, Xandros, and now Linux Mint. I'm comfortable enough with it that I've abandoned Windows, which is a great feeling when I continue to see all the problems that others have with it. I'm always being asked to help a Windows user with their issues... issues that Linux users just don't have to worry about.
At the same time there are a number of things that are Linux specific that I really ought to learn how to do so that I'm no longer just "getting by" but rather have a true understanding of Linux and of Mint in particular.
