Back home again

Post by Hexeratops » Fri Jul 05, 2019 11:22 pm

Hi everyone! I'm back again! This time, maybe a bit more permanently.

I've been hopping between many different distros since Ubuntu 9.04 and it's finally come to a point where I want a distro to settle with as my main desktop. More unstable stuff like Arch and Tumbleweed was fun for a few years and I've learned a lot from it, but I think it's time to come back to something a bit more relaxing.

The last time I used Mint seriously was probably around Isadora (still love + use that default wallpaper), and coming back now, I'm seriously impressed with how stable and clean everything is. Clem and the rest of the team really do a fantastic job on everything regarding this distro. The desktop is buttery smooth, the overall environment is stable and comfortable, and the UI tools are largely very reliable and don't require you to open a terminal all the time! Of course, everything's not completely perfect, but the level of polish stands out to me as something very unique and special.

I also have to say... I like that you guys are using a classic forum style instead of a JavaScript intensive web app. At any rate, nice to meet you guys :)
