Thank you

Postby James360 » Mon Apr 26, 2010 8:22 pm

I would like to take this time to say thank you Clem, Kendall, and the Mint team for this great distro. I am new to the Linux world. I have been distro searching for the past 5 months now. I tried Fedora 12 KDE version, because wireless for my Dell works out of the box. It was bloated with softwares I don't really need. After about two months of using Fedora and updating to the new kernel, Fedora would not boot after rebooting after the update. It just hanged in the GRUB booting. I lost everything. I understood a little more about Linux and distro. Therefore, I tried Kubuntu. Many programs were useless to me. I felt bored with it. I never used the Plasma. I want something simple and fast. After searching, I found Linux Mint Fluxbox CE. I used the live version and tested it, and I started to fall in love with it. It is simple, and it is fast. It is not that bad looking. It is not bloated with useless softwares. Also, I checked out the forum. I have a good impression with the Linux Mint community. Therefore, I joined this forum and installed Linux Mint Fluxbox CE. I won't be distro hopping anymore. I found a home for my laptop.

Keep up the great work!

James

Glad you like it, speaking as NONE of the afore-mentioned, just another user like yourself.

You may be done Distro Hopping, but keep on experimenting: it's fun and you can learn some really cool stuff. :mrgreen:
Um... you have a back-up copy,right?
