Hello!

Post by spammusubi » Mon Aug 29, 2016 12:02 am

Hello, everyone.

I was bored one day, and wanted to see if I can mess with Linux. It's been years since I last tinkered it. Heard good things about Linux Mint, and found out that you can boot to it using a USB stick. I figured it out, wanted to learn a little more, and here I am.

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.

Namaste and welcome to the Linux Mint forums! :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.
