greetings from Québec

Postby geoffm » Wed Sep 26, 2012 8:12 pm

Hi, I'm Geoff, I'm an agrologist living in Québec (Canada). I've been interested in free software since 1998 but I started using gnu/linux in 2007. I just started using Linux Mint again after trying several other distributions (mandriva, ubuntu, opensuse, fedora, arch) and DE's (XFCE, KDE3, gnome 2, gnome 3, KDE4) over the years. I really like cinnamon so far and where it is going. I've always found that the Linux Mint developers have a good vision of what users need.

Hi geoffm, welcome also to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums! You've already also found the Community site, and your participation there is much appreciated!

Be sure also to check out 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.
