Hello Everyone!

Postby fishbowl42 » Tue Jul 20, 2010 2:50 am

Hello everyone!

I first cut my teeth on Linux with Mandrake 9.0 back in 2002 and have been rocking out with my geek out ever since. I am not much of a developer but I am good at tinkering and configuring Linux for Desktop & Home Office use. I have had my eye on Linux Mint since Bea and just installed Isadora on my desktop, laptop, netbook, and brother's laptop (previously running Debian Squeeze). I have been really impressed with the progress I have seen coming out of this project.

Wow, going from Debian Squeeze to Mint Isadora, huh? More than a few Debian users would call that heresy! :lol:

Yeah, well . . . what can I say - I'm a renegade. Mainly, I became tired of the tedious configuration that sometimes comes with Debian and slow adoption of innovation. Mostly, what won me over is the method of updates on Mint.

Thanks everyone for the welcome.
