New Linux User :]

Post by wannabelinuxuser » Sat Apr 14, 2018 8:23 am

Hello guys !
Myself Kiran,
I am a windows user for about 15 years.
So basically I got bored of using windows for some reason and chose Linux. :roll:
Now I am here using Linux Mint as my First Distribution.


:wink:

Welcome to the forum! But can you please remove that signature image? It's giving me a headache. I don't think anyone here is going to enjoy seeing that same image again and again.
