Introducing myself...

Postby nabnut » Tue Sep 25, 2012 7:30 pm

Hi Mint users,
I realized after posting in another section of this forum that I had not yet introduced myself, how rude of me ! :)

I am a 27 years old ordinary geek from France, working in IT, and long time GNU/Linux user.
I started playing with Linux in 2001 with Mandrake 8, then did a lot of distro hopping... Debian, Gentoo, Fedora, Ubuntu, OpenSUSE, Arch ... then Mint.

I now use LMDE with Cinnamon on my desktop at hope, and the XFCE edition at work in a Virtualbox !
For me Mint (and more particularly LMDE Cinnamon) brings the best of the Linux desktop : works out of the box, beautiful desktop environment, easy updates,
stable, no clutter, and still highly configurable to your needs.

I did two or three donations to the project since I know Mint but I am so happy with it that I recently decided to give on a monthly basis.

And of course... the community seems great, glad to be a part of it.
Hope Mint will get really far in popularizing the GNU/Linux desktop ! (it already has anyway)

Thanks for reading !

Hi nabnut, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums! And thanks for your help keeping the developers fed and the servers running. Especially the developers get cranky when we don't feed them :)

Be sure also to check out the Community website (ideas, tutorials, and hardware and software reviews), 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-debian for support with other Linux Mint users (you can type "/join #linuxmint-chat" to join the chat channel also).

Have fun with Linux Mint.

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.
