Hello

Just installed Mint 17 Cinnimon and wiped out Windows 8 - is a pain.
Can't be more impressed. Light, elegant, and open. It's been since my 486sx that I felt this in control of my desktop/laptop.

I'm curently a C.S. student and Mac is out of reach, and using cygwin was always limited. This OS is exactly seems exactly what I have always wished I was using.

Looking forward to geting acclimated and contributing :)

What you said is what I said when I got my Minty working! Loving it! (LMDE for me...)
Breaking and fixing is learning! This knowledge gained gives power. And power gives you freedom if used with wisdom!
