Greetings from Cape York Peninsula...FFNQ Australia!

Thought I should drop in here and say hi to everyone, especially the moderators and volunteers, to whom I'm sure I'll be calling upon at some stage in the future!

I've flirted with linux on and off over the years, but never committed. A recent crash of my old windows 7 laptop and long standing disdain for microsoft, has prompted me to install Mint 18.3.
Really liking it so far.....I've had a few little problems, some still on going, but nothing I couldn't or haven't been able to sort out myself......that's half the fun of exploring something new.
Anyway, hats off to all, hopefully I'll have something to contribute as time goes by.

Regards,
the sailordog.
