I love this OS!

Postby joking » Thu Jan 20, 2011 8:49 pm

Hi Everyone!, I have been using Julia for some time now and it was the most easy OS I have installed in a long time. Even got my Sirius account set up and working and am able to do anything I have wanted to do with minimal confusion. The auto update feature is working well and I haven't broken it yet so I am one truly happy camper.

Thanks to the great team who put this software out there for us to enjoy!

Windows assumes you're an idiot.
Linux demands proof of it.

Welcome to LinuxMint and the Mint Forums.

I bought my first PC from Radio Shack in 1984. :cry: Damn, I'm old.
My first website went on-line in Oct. '92 on what was then, the WorldWideWeb (pre-internet)

So, I had been a Windows user for many a year. But with Linux for the past few years ... about 5 years.
Started with Fedora > Sabayon > Ubuntu > Mint > Debian >LMDE

I am a Registered Architect, in the US, that uses GNU/Linux and Open Source exclusively. :D

^ there are already several established Linux User Groups (LUG) in North Carolina.

I did a search in http://google.com/linux for LUG in NC and several groups in a few different cities popped up. Check them out. :D
