New to Linux Mint

Post by DeanoVIP »

Hi all, just wanted to say hello, I'm brand new to Linux Mint. After being with Windows for the last 15 years, and the need to sell the desktop and go with a laptop I took the opportunity to change. So far I'm really impressed, a little confused at times but when I get something done you get a sense of achievement. I'm looking to learn HTML, CSS etc.. play the odd game, surf the web usual stuff. I'm sure I will be calling for help in the near future so look forward to chatting with you all. :D

Welcome to the Mint family forums

most problems already have a fix,
search
read
ask
and don't rush to avoid disappointment

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.

Hi DeanoVIP,
Welcome to Mint and the forums.
At first the learning curve seems steeper than it really is.
Hang in there--it will level out in no time.
Enjoy being untethered.
Light travels faster than sound.
That's why some people appear smart until you hear what they are saying.
