A New Happy Linux Mint User

Post by meco » Mon Nov 19, 2018 8:02 pm

About a few months ago I switched from Windows 7 to Linux Mint 19 and I am very happy with it :D

Years ago I started with MS-DOS and Win3.1. Have used W95, 2K, XP and my last one W7. In the past years I had some different Linux distro's beside windows on my machine with dual boot. So I had some feeling with Linux its not completely new to me. But because of the lack of privacy the choices made by Microsoft with Windows 10 I don't want to use that OS. So I am now running Linux Mint 19 on my machine and i like it very much!

Info on Linux Mint website and forum helped me a lot, so Thank You :P

What - no Windows ME??? How disappointing! :lol:

Welcome to the Mint forums. You'll find many Windows 10 refugees here, myself included. I really didn't think that MS could make an OS worse than 8 (or ME or 3.0).
