Hello from Crystal Empire

Post by Octavian » Mon Jul 21, 2014 11:32 pm

I am a Brony but a child at heart. I am 23 years old and going to be getting back into college soon. I love music and its kind of a thing for me to be compared to Octavia the pony cellist who is mainly a background character for friendship is magic. Classical is my cup of tea but now with mint.

I got tired of ubuntu simply because I am not sure if my laptop needs to be replaced or if the updates are not solid enough to work for my old Inspiron Dell. I always hear people talking about Linux mint. I usually find a couple every so often in the pony fandom.

I love math and electronics and for a big part of my child hood I used to study science on my own and not just in class. I never hated having to study something over again. It makes it easy to remember. Numbers made more sense than science but I did not lack the interest.

I for a while studied PIC chips from Micro Engineering labs. I never had the stuff to program until Windows decided to shoot itself in the foot. I have Microcode studio as well as a interface for the programming. I want to learn because i spent a lot on this stuff but Windows is a real pain sometimes. I am thinking about selling it.

I guess thats why I liked Linux and Ubuntu. It was because it never lacked flexibility. I hope to find time to study Linux again soon I miss it.

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.
