Coming to Mint

Postby Diekan » Tue May 01, 2012 10:33 pm

I have to say, I can't understand what took me so long to make the change. I used Ubuntu for what seemed like forever and always... ALWAYS had problems. Updates often led to things breaking, couldn't this or that to work...

With Ubuntu being as popular as it is - do you think the issues with it are turning people away from Linux?

With Mint? I even have Everquest II running flawlessly -- WITHOUT having to use a Windows partition to host the directory. No hitches, no glitches, no issues.

I have to say I am absolutely glad I made the switch. Another thing I have noticed just in my short time here is that the Mint community seems a lot more helpfull. The mods on the Ubuntuforums delete posts they don't like, newbie questions often go ignored, serious questions rarely get helped. Just seems like night and day.

All this time I thought Ubuntu was the "way to go" - wow was I wrong.

By the way I am not meaning to slam on Ubuntu - I can't understand the "why."

On behalf of the collective a warm welcome to Mint. It's always good to hear from a new initiate who has had a positive experience. The obvious advice based on your experience is to spread the word on your experiences with Mint (Ubuntu based friends... :lol: ).

I know we all look forward to your contributions to the Mint project in the future.
