Hello to the Mint community!

First off, I would like to say thanks to those who have made this distibution avilable! Great work!

I'm RHCSA and I have a daily job in which I manage a few thousand Linux servers running Ubuntu and CentOS in the web-hosting industry. I'm no stranger to the Linux desktop, however, I've not found a distibution that I've felt completely comfortable with until now. I've always found myself more effecient using a Windows-workstation, especailly with the amount of VMs that I would have running at any given point.

Recently my job put a policy in place that we are no longer allowed to run Windows on our machines and that we must switch to a Linux-based or Mac OS. On the hunt I went. Mint 14 KDE, out of the box, feels wonderful, much better than Kubuntu!

Thanks again!
