Long-Time Windows Pro Now a Linux Mint Noob

Postby KoHoSo » Wed Oct 20, 2010 12:00 am

What a great forum! This place has already answered several of my questions so maybe I will never need to post here...but, might as well test out the ol' sig and avatar, eh? :wink:

After years of abuse from Windows, I am so glad to have gotten around to looking at Linux again and found Linux Mint. I am highly impressed with how it works "right out of the box" for a lot of systems. As a long-time go-to guy for friends and business acquaintances for their myriad of problems with Windows, I am looking forward to really getting into Linux Mint and gaining more converts for this distribution or any others...anything but Windows, right? :lol:

Seriously...I cannot thank the developers of Linux Mint and the helpful people in this forum enough for making a distribution that is so user-friendly. I am really looking forward to getting more familiar with Linux even though I know I will run into some real puzzles with it. Still, I'd rather do that now since Linux Mint gives such a great start than continue to pound my head against the wall with Microsoft.

Welcome to Mint KoHoSo!

I hope you come to enjoy the land of Linux. I certainly have.

Since learning with Mint, ubuntu, et al, I've come to realize how much i didn't know back in the Windows days. I thought I knew some things... but now I'm learning! :D

Welcome and enjoy. \o
