Newb Linux here

Postby nRRe » Sun Jun 27, 2010 5:03 am

Just installed Linux Mint to dualboot with Win7 64bit. All i use my computer for is browsing the net and talking on AIM. First time using Linux ever, been using Windows since 93ish with Windows 3.1...

I also have an HTC EVO 4G phone and am hoping I can use Linux to flash/root the phone and all that jazz.

Saying Hi, been using forums for a long time so I am well aware of the "search" button. :lol:
- Rich
Linux Mint 9 running on Acer Aspire 5532 with 1.8ghz dual core processor upgrade.
