Hello from South Africa!

Post by scubamut » Tue Jul 31, 2018 6:07 am

I was in IT for many years (before I retired) and used Windows :oops: before deciding on Linux Mint instead. I should have done this LONG ago, but rather late than never......

I look forward to joining all you guys and girls!

Cheers :D

Hi Scubamut, welcome from a fellow South African living in Germany. Been using Linux Mint since 2008 and never looked back.
