Hello from UK

Post by Yaakovnew2linux » Tue Feb 27, 2018 7:38 pm

Hello

I thought I would introduce myself. I'm Yaakov from the United Kingdom. I recently switched from Mac to Windows and then to Linux! Due to current finances I needed a new laptop so I brought a Lenovo ideapad which was pre-installed with Windows 10. After two weeks I got fed up with the crashes and installed Linux Mint Mate. I must admit I rather enjoy the layout of Linux. I have I reminds me of Mac OS to some degree. I have always been a massive fan of open source programming and software. I am mainly using the Linux for writing up essays and taking notes. However, I would like to re-learn coding and learn how to use Linux at a much deeper level.
