Philosopher contemplating the mintness

Post by e__ » Tue Feb 13, 2018 10:31 pm

Hello Mint community! :mrgreen:

I'm enchanted to see an integrated chat functionality into the OS, as well as easy encryption and an active forum. I couldn't ask for more. The people here are very responsive and am looking forward to expand my knowledge along with you.

I've been using linux for 3 - 4 years now, starting with Ubuntu going to Lubuntu, Arch, some newer experimental distros like Elementary, and ended up here. Mint is one of my favorite plants, and pepper one of the earliest I can remember. I occasionally put lemon in my tea as well.

Hope It will be an easy transition and that this OS will turn into something I can peacefully power-use.

Welcome aboard!

PS: There is something it is like to be a bat. It follows then that there is something it is like to be a Mint user.
