Hi everyone *waves*
I only jumped the fence to Linux a week ago, so I'm still learning the basics. I have to admit that I did get a kick out of deleting windows off my computer.... anyway, I'm from Oztralia, so I'll be posting questions while you guys sleep!
Despite my lack of computer knowledge I managed to download Mint onto a usb stick and get my old spare computer up and running in no time. Downloading the os took a few tries as the file kept getting corrupted, but once that was completed the change over from windows to Linux only took 45 mins from go to whoa. Fortunately there are some good youtube tutorials to follow, and plenty of how to's elsewhere, for those who are thinking about doing the switch.
That about covers my basic info, see you's out in the forum!

Thanks Andy, it's nice to be able to read a post without having to flip my screen upside-down (or even worse reading while standing on my head)
