Greetings from Germany - Finally made the switch

Post by Gibdos » Wed Sep 11, 2019 1:33 am

Hello my fellow Linux Mint users,

after having dabbled with Linux since the first Ubuntu releases, I finally made the complete switch to Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon from Windows 10.
And I have to say, I am still speechless how great everything works. Even World of Warcraft works perfect. In fact, my GPU runs cooler than on Windows :shock:

Anyway, I've been using Mint exclusively for about a week now and I've learned more about Linux in this week than in the last ten years combined. And I am enjoying every minute of it so far. And even if I should run into any problems, I am safe in the knowledge that I can come to this nice and friendly forum to get help.

Thank you Linux Mint for being such a great and stable OS and thank you dear forum people for being such a friendly and helpful bunch!
Linux Mint 19.2 Cinnamon Edition
CPU: Intel© Core™ i7-8086K CPU
GPU: AMD Radeon RX580 8GB
MoBo: Asus Prime Z370-A
