Hello Everybody!

Post by LaughingGravy » Thu Aug 17, 2017 9:18 am

Hi all,

Thought I'd finally join the forum. Been using Linux since 1992 and Mint since v4 so no newbie. Coming from the Unix world it was a natural progression to Linux both server and desktop. Mint for me by far the best desktop having previously used Slackware and SuSE. No Windows devices at home and haven't used it since XP and that on a work machine.

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! :)
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.
