New-to-linux

Post by wideload » Fri Dec 08, 2017 3:00 pm

Good morning, all.

After beginning to study information security and network design over the last few months it has become painfully obvious that learning the ins and outs of 'nix based systems was going to be important. After a couple of hours perusing various forums, I decided to grab a couple of distros and throw them into a VM. Mint was the first one I installed and so far I am loving it.

I am looking forward to using Mint as a daily driver for a couple of days and hope to become proficient.

Thanks in advance for all of your helpful answers to the questions I am sure to start asking soon.

Regards,
wideload~$
