Hi to all and to my first linux distro!

Post by GokyMint »

I'm a long time windows user.Recently I wanted to give Linux a try and I've did it with Mint.The only thing I didn't understand is why I didn't done it sooner.Linux is amazing!.I've read lots of books-guides-this forum etc and I'm catching up fast.One problem I have is I can't install LMDE (I want to give Debian a try),it hangs on hard disk screen.I've seen one user having the same problem recently under LMDE/Install subforum and I hope someone will help us both.

Congrats for joining the Linux Mint community. You should probably start with the main edition. It's easier to learn ;)
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.

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.
