Excited to be using Linux

Post by MulcanFish »

Hi,

I'm from the UK and have, after many years of thinking about it, made the switch to using Linux on my desktop devices. The final push for me was a Linux Format magazine with a free Linux Mint CD on the front, I thought I'd give it a go and here I am! It really is great. Thanks for having me :-)

Excited to be using Linux
That sums it up pretty well...back in 2016 when i finally had enough of Win 10 I did the same thing as you, although i had a brief daliance with Ubuntu linux back around 2007 but found it too foreign for my likeing way back when.
Thanks for having me

Welcome to the forum Steve!

I've always found the Linux Format magazine to be very informative, always has something of interest in it.
