It's time to stop lurking

Post by DarkRubySage »

I've been around here for a fair while now. I only have a few posts, and half the time I'm here I don't sign in. I think it's time to stop lurking and finally introduce myself.

I'm Tal and I've been enlightened for about 4 years now.

My first distro was PClinuxOS, and after a year I moved through Mandriva(Is that dead now, or what), and Freespire to Linux Mint 5. I had that for a while until I moved to Ubuntu 8.04 and then 8.10. After that I came to Linux Mint 7, and here I have remained since then. I've tried Arch, it was good but I didn't like the lack of packages. I use openSUSE sometimes as well. Every computer in my house(4) is now running Linux(2 are Mint 10, 1 is Mint Debian, mine is Mint 10 and Fedora). My parents are long converted to the penguin and are safe from Microsoft's clutches.

We openly welcome you to the Open community DRS. I will not give any links to the community and Tips topic since you have probably seen them several times.

Again, welcome.

Welcome Tal. I also won't bore you with links as I'm sure you know your way around the Mint community as well as I do. Have fun with Mint.
