Hi from Melbourne Australia

Post by webwrx » Mon Oct 08, 2018 1:54 am

Hi from "Down Under"... I'm a part time enthusiast. Started on TRSDOS back in 1982, and now... many operating systems later (Win/Mac/Ubuntu/Win10), here I am on Linux Mint.

I knew something was very wrong when I went for 3 months recently without even turning on my Windows 10 desktop because the whole experience was too painful. I had forgotten that computers should be fun.

So here I am with a new lease on life. :)
