Greetings Mint Community

Postby ttt9090 » Tue Jan 04, 2011 12:24 pm

Hi everyone.
Just joined the forums and thought I'd say hello and thanks to all for Mint.
I've been toying around with many distro's since many years, but like many I always seemed to find something I couldn't do without from MS, or had some hardware issue that I couldn't fix.
I'm so happy to announce that I recently installed Mint 10.x on my Aspire One AO150 netbook and everything is perfect.
My wife has been using it for a week now and hasn't once asked for instructions or come across anything that doesn't work for her.
I'm going to boot it live on my presario laptop & see if it's workable there & if so, I think we can finally say good riddance to that other OS once and for all.
Cheers to all & Happy new year.

Thanks for the warm welcome.
Mint is now running on Presario laptop with no issues.
Installed & updated perfectly alongside Win7.
Tested everything and then wiped whole disk and re-installed mint alone.
Finally a no problem open source OS. Yahoo!
