Hello, all.

Postby jimallyn » Tue Jul 01, 2014 5:46 pm

Greetings to all. I have just installed Mint 17 on two of my computers and am enjoying it. I tried Mint a couple of years ago, but the computer I had it on crashed big time, so I haven't used Mint in some time. I am an old Xandros user. (I still run Xandros 4 on one of my computers, and have another computer in the back room with Xandros 1 and win98 in win4Lin.) I hope to get to know the community here, and hope to learn enough about Mint to be able to contribute back to the community.

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 Jimallyn,

Whilst I have never met you "in person" I remember you well from the Xandros forums, you were quite an active, helpful contributor.

Hope you enjoy your transition to Mint. I transitioned to Ubuntu but got lost in a timewarp at 11.04. Never liked Unity but it became obvious that 11.04 was no longer a viable option if I wanted to remain current with both software and security.

I am running Mint 17 64bit with the MATE desktop. Watching with great interest the dynamics of Mint in general. Seem like a genuine bunch and the forums seem tolerant and generally helpful with minimal conflict, which of course is nice :-)

Hope I come across you helping folks and maybe, just maybe I have a few tricks up my sleeve to help you and others.

VERY warm welcome - Mal

Welcome to the Linux Mint Forums. I also remember you from the Xandros days. I'm pretty busy these days so I'm not here often, but for me Mint "Just Works". I only use Windows for Quicken 2000 and TurboTax during tax time.
