Namaste from India

Post by N3wb » Mon Sep 17, 2018 11:49 am

Hi all!
Recently took the plunge to dual boot Linux on my old laptop. I chose Mint as it felt the easiest to transition from a lifelong Windows user. Other reasons of mine to go ahead with Linux as my daily OS are privacy and programming.
Thankfully there haven't been any major issues since install, though I'll be posting here and there for minor issues (hopefully will encounter no major issues).
Have a nice day!

Gah, I've been unlucky lately. Had to reinstall the OS once.
