Hello from Brittany (France)

Post by DarthThauron » Sun Mar 25, 2018 5:42 am

Hi,
I live in North West of France, in Brittany (Bretagne), a Celtic culture area with a language close to Welsh.
I am a former user of Macintosh (from 1992 to 2016). The first time I met Linux was when I was in Rennes University and my first Linux was MkLinux for PowerPC. I was impressed by the efficiency of the OS... But in 2001, I really loved the birth of MacOS X, which was an incredible UNIX... But, during the years, The Mac had become worse and worse, less free with its Appstore, constraints, more closed hardware and with an increasing planned obsolescence (very bad for the consumers and the our bad healthy planet) !
So I've decided to switch to Linux Mint, an impressive piece of freedom with a very good design ! Thanks a lot to Clem and his team !
Therefore I use every day a Compulab Airtop (very good and powerfull fan less computer) as my desktop computer, and an Asus Zenbook as my latop one.
Linux Mint 18.3 Sylvia Kernel 4.14
Compulab Airtop Computer 32 GB
Quad core Intel Core i7-5775C (-HT-MCP-) cache: 6144 KB
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB/PCIe/SSE2
