New to linux long time windows user

Post by sleepyski » Wed Mar 21, 2018 1:01 am

Hello everyone!

I'm sleepy and I am a long time windows user. I currently still use windows on my main (gaming) computer and I also have a macbook and this laptop that I put mint on. I am a college student currently pursing a computer science degree with a information technology minor. I have some background in python, java and doing some work with arduino and raspberry pi. I am looking forward to learning linux and will be very active on these forums! Don't be afraid to say hi and send me a friend request. 8)
Sorry, sounds like a hardware problem.

Welcome aboard!
A new scientific truth does not triumph by convincing its opponents and making them see the light, but rather because its opponents eventually die, and a new generation grows up that is familiar with it. - Max Planck
