Hey all! New to Linux

Post by SleepyWeasel » Thu Oct 02, 2014 1:06 pm

Hello all! I figured my first post in the forum should be here... I'm entirely new to Linux and I'm used to Windows so this is all very different. I'm already addicted to the challenge of figuring it out now. Just want to say thanks in advance for all the help I hope to get down the road :mrgreen:

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.
