New to Mint

Post by ortega52 » Sun Apr 08, 2018 2:48 am

Hello everyone,

Just installed Linux Mint 18 on my sister's old laptop, and I got a say, it looks pretty good. She had Windows XP, which is no longer support it, and the rest is history. Anyhow, I am here to stay, learn,participate, and grow with Linux community.
