I think I've found home

Post by Philomath_tux »

Hey everybody, just introducing myself on the forum.

I've recently setup my daily driver machine with Linux Mint 20 (Cinnamon) and was very impressed with how easy and smooth the process was; it very much "just worked". Historically my primary machine has been either Windows or MacOS and I never committed to Open Source Linux as my DD. I wish I had sooner.

I've been a systems admin for both Redhat and Windows systems for a number of years now. I got a Mac for a bit to learn that OS and finished it with "meh". ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

After installing Mint and being able to customize so many aspects I don't think I could switch back to anything else. Also there was a noticeable speed boost overall from the macbook pro I came from.

I have programming experience in a few different languages and am interested in contributing in the future. (Right now I don't have a lot of free time.)

This looks like a good community though and I'm excited to be a part. :)
