Hello From Bristol UK

Postby paw » Mon Jul 30, 2012 12:09 pm

Hi All

I have been using windows based PC's for many years and have dabbled a little over the years with various Linux distros, but have always ended up going back to windows. I am determined to make a permanent switch and for now have decided upon Mint. I have just installed the Cinammon version of Linux Mint 13 “Maya” and so far all is good. Although I have 'played' with linux before I am still very much a n00b, so thanks in advance for all the help I'm sure I wil find in these forums.

Cheers Paw

Welcome to the mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

Hi Paw, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums!

Be sure also to check out the Community website (tutorials, hardware and software reviews, ideas), and the Cinnamon Spices website for adding even more themes, applets and extensions to Cinnamon.

You can also chat in real-time with other Linux Mint users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users.

Have fun with Linux Mint.
