Hi! to everyone Linux Mint users!

Post by tompravi »

My name is Yiannis (officially "Ioannis", a Jewish name).
I'm an old user of linux, since 1998-1999, from difficult years, for linux and internet speed in Hellas. I started with Redhat for a short period and after that I use Debian and Linux Debian Family Distros.
From now on I use MX, Linux Mint and Debian (stable).
I think the linux users is a family despite of the capitalistic purposes of companies behind some distros.
The progress of linux in 20 years is amazing. The very young users can't imagine the difficulties, specially with drivers. But the can make an experiment of instaling and using a debian or another distro version of 1998.
I'm proud of using Linux and I belong to this amazing community.

Hello Yiannis,
Welcome to Linux Mint Forums, enjoy! :)
We come from about the same time period in Linux. I began with Slackware about 1996 or 97. Remember installing with about 25 floppies. and the drivers were a big problem back then. Glad to have you here with your knowledge you should be of help to many.

Welcome aboard, Yiannis! You've got a few years on me, I started using Linux in 2002 (but only because I didn't know about it until then).
