New Convert Down Under

Postby Kiwiken » Thu Oct 14, 2010 2:03 am

Hi Everyone
Mint is a great move into the Linux world for me and the organisation I am building - no MS here :mrgreen:
It's going to be a challenge for our users coming from a "corporate" background but if we can give them regular mentoring we'll get there.
Also going all cloud and open source, Google Apps and Open Office.
Wish me luck!.

Hi Ken

It's good to see another Antipodean brother hanging around. I wish you well on your Open Source conversion quest let us know how you go, I'm very interested as I am trying (with great difficulty) to do a similar thing in my town.

Cheers
Michael.
