Hi the Mint Community! Greetings from an Alsatian :)

Post by cpedretti »

hello community,

after a few topics I finally come to introduce myself.

Computer science has been my passion since 2004 and I made it my profession by being a IT technician.

I have known the Unix world since 2005 with Mac OS X, started my experiences with a Mac Mini G4 , later PowerMac G5 Dual and then iMacs Intel.

My aging hardware, I turned to Linux in 2018, discovering and testing many distro via virtualbox, since 2019 I run Linux on my computer.

After a good number of tests my choice finally turned to Mint.

My goal here is to participate in the life of the forum, to contribute with my tutorials useful or not.

See you in the Community :wink:
