Hello from the Netherlands

Post by Jorg3670 » Mon Jul 09, 2018 2:21 pm

Hey all, my Linux journey started in 1999 when I ordered a SuSE Linux 6.3 CD-box just for fun :D At home I have been a distro hopper. I was a Linux administrator and Oracle DBA for many years and the main distributions were SLES and RHEL. In 2012 I switched for personal use to an iMac because I needed something that works out of the box and is hassle free. After years on iMac I checked Linux Mint and it was love at first sight. The freedom I need and the hassle free experience I want :) I sold my iMac and ordered a MintBox Mini 2 Pro and I'm back again in the Linux World.
