Hello from Minnesota, where spring is in the air,...except for the snowstorm tomorrow

Hello all,

New Linux user here.
Perhaps I am being too ambitious but I currently have successful installations of Linux Mint in three different ways.
1. Dual booting from an original Dell-XPS-13
2. VM via Hyper-V on my desktop Intel PowerSpec
3. Flash drive bootable

I am wondering if this forum will be a good place to ask specific, pinpointed questions about Linux and Python.

Cheers,
Phil

Welcome pcsailor! That is ambitious and that's wonderful. Good that you have your bootable flash drive of Mint. It can/will help fix a snag that you may run into from time to time. I know it has for me.

Spring is in the air everywhere...where it isn't snowing, that is.

Don't worry, it will get warm again.

Just in time to turn cold again... :wink:

Thanks, everybody. What a warm welcome! I haven't seen this type of a warm reception since my Compuserve days <;

While I am an avid motorcyclist and a lover of Japanese bikes, that Goldwing one is not me, but I'm curious who. I've been using that tag for years. My initials and career.

We tend to live in the past here (read: most of us are a bunch of old geezers...;) )
