A quick intro

Postby Mike54 » Mon Jun 28, 2010 7:10 am

I just wanted to quickly say hello.

I've used Ubuntu since back in the days of Feisty Fawn and I am impressed with how polished Mint is by comparison. I must admit I use Linux because I want to make my own choices and not because I am an ultra-tech. I learn new things about Linux each day, which is a good thing for an auld git like myself. :wink:

I was worried about removing Ubuntu Lucid and installing Mint 9, but the install was smooth as silk and I was pleased to see how some pieces of added software were seeing the configurations I had set up in Ubuntu. And imagine having a 64 bit installation that actually works with YouTube! I should have switched to Mint a long time ago.

I look forward to meeting everyone and learning from all of you.

Welcome, sir, to the Mint community. Please feel free to ask any question you may have either here or in the Mint chat rooms ( available by clicking Xchat IRC in the menu under Internet). Also, take advantage of the new Mint Community Website for information on hardware and software compatibility and general info on the future direction of Mint.
