Hi from Zoolooland

Post by tacoz » Sat Jun 11, 2016 4:27 am

Nice to be back in the Mint space...

My last few distros have been with Xubuntu and while that worked out for me, on a whim I decided to look at the XFCE offering from Mint and was reading the post on the up-coming 18 version. So I waited a few days and when I saw the Cinnamon Beta avialable, I went for it. Really, really nice and even better, a pleasant surprise! I guess now I'll just have to adjust away from the XFCE way of doing things and get to grips with this spicy DE!

So - just to add to the already many accolades... "Well done Mint team!"

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.

Hello and welcome here in the Mint forums, hope you will like it.
As always: be nice to others and others will be nice to you.

Just a side note: is it me or is the amount of newcomers rising lately? I see so many people who introduce themselves here. Very positive of course, just keep coming in. There's plenty of room here.

Welcome to the Linux Mint forums1 :D
नमस्ते = Namaste
I honor the place in you in which the entire universe dwells.
I honor the place in you in which is of love, of truth, of light, and of peace.
When you are in that place in you, and I am in that place in me, we are one.
