English man in Vancouver...

Post by mclarenservices » Mon Mar 05, 2018 10:17 pm

Hi everyone,

Wanted to reach out to the MINT community and say "Hello fellow OS freedom fighters!".

Recently got bored of 'Bills' old company chasing me for my data with zero regard for a usable OS. In a past life I used to play with early RH distro for hacky stuff before FEDs got upset (Sub7 RIP), then work commitments meant I had to head towards the Dark side before spending many years in the Fruit OS and finally returning to a FREE and user run OS.

So thank you so much for keeping dream of a FREE system that protects us from big data.

:D
