Greetings and salutations!

Post by alxr » Wed Jul 25, 2018 2:29 pm

Greetings!

I've been a PC builder, gamer, Mac user, and creative (audio and photography) for years. I haven't touched a Linux distro in well over a decade, but I've been hearing good things about Mint and decided to give it a shot. I've had a positive experience so far. I've only poked around in the terminal for 5 minutes, but some of the elements feel similar to my Mac's terminal.

I figured I'd have plenty of questions, and this place had answers!
