Hello

Post by Ringel05 » Sat Oct 21, 2017 3:29 pm

Actually joined in 2012, honestly don't remember joining. Had been an Ubuntu then Mint user until Win 7 came out but since Win 8 was a no go and Win 10 isn't going to work out for me I spent a couple of weeks distro testing and to make a long story short settled on Mint Cinnamon with the Cinnamenu applet installed. 8)

Welcome aboard, you've picked my personal favourite, I've tried many DE's and distros and mint with Cin is just about as good as anything gets IMO.

Welcome aboard, Ringel05! On my main desktop computer, I run Cinnamon,but I've got a couple of older computers that aren't very powerful, and XFCE works well on those.
