Made the switch

Post by Mayers »

Hello everyone, my name is Marc and I officially became a Linux Mint 17 Mate user a few days ago.

Up until a few days ago any home pc I owned ran Windows through out the years.

For a week now I've found myself dealing with a dying acer laptop and all the old desktops I had laying around were built for windows xp so this wasn't going to work out well lol.

So after reading around I found a site talking about Linux Mint as a windows replacement and then found myself on this forum for a while doing more detailed reading.

I must say this a very helpful community and I look forward to being here. I'd like to say thanks to the Linux Mint team for making such a user friendly system.

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.
