Hello Mint community
My longtime passion is poker.
I Live in the U.S.A and actually live close to Bill Gates in the Pacific Northwest.
I am a Linux noobie , after using Win98 , XP for a decade I took a leap and put Ubuntu 10.04 on one of my laptops
and the 10.04 netbook edition on the other.
I have found Linux to be far more stable and faster than Windows.

The big advantage is how the programs update.

Another thing is this community , The Linux community where lots of people around the globe
work together for a greater good .

Linux is beautiful !
