Linux from now on

Post by marx404 »

Hello everyone. I am not exactly new to linux, I have tried various distros prior to and after Ubuntu and stubbornly stuck with windows products for years until XP was killed off. As I have some legacy hardware, Ubuntu was not so friendly (especially with Unity). I loved Zorin OS, but came across too many "small" issues with AWN, time to try out a new flavor.
Been hearing so much about Mint and Cinnamon, tried it, LOVE it! Highly configurable, everything just works and no AWN.
I love to tinker and reconfigure so I am sure I will find some way to "break" something and have lots of newbie type questions. Thanks in advance for all the help.

btw- I am a technician by default, my past is in Info Technology and I am a Certified Technology Expert for Chevrolet. Guess what OS is in the MyLink dash system? Linux!

Cheers!

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.
