Re: Promotion by example

I hear ya and it pains me as I've experienced that too but once getting someone sitting in the driving seat and prompting them through an easy Mint install I usually have a convert.

Hello Everybody!

Hi all, Thought I'd finally join the forum. Been using Linux since 1992 and Mint since v4 so no newbie. Coming from the Unix world it was a natural progression to Linux both server and desktop.
