Hello All

Postby wobblybob » Mon Mar 21, 2011 6:50 pm

I'm Martin [wobblybob] from Hull, uk, I've been using Linux since 2007 and have used Ubuntu Gnome up to now but have decided that Unity is a step too far :) So here I am downloading Linux Mint Debian xfce on Torrent with 90 minutes to go so I guess I'll be testing it on my day off on Wednesday. I've been using Xubuntu since Ubuntu Natty alpha 1 but like the idea of a rolling Debian install. I'm looking forward to testing Mint and to hanging around in the forum when I have the time. Thanks for reading my first post..

Welcome to the Mint forums Martin. I'm sure you will also want to visit our Mint Community Website at http://community.linuxmint.com/. You will find real-time help in our IRC channels. Just go to Menu>Internet>XChat IRC and when you open it you will automatically be taken to our #linuxmint-chat and #linuxmint-help channels. Have fun with Mint.

welcome fellow Brit to the Mint family forums

The idea that Bill Gates has appeared like a knight in shining armour to lead all customers out of a mire of technological chaos neatly ignores the fact that it was he who, by peddling second-rate technology, led them into it in the first place.

Thanks 4 That, I hope there are more than 2 of us using Mint in the UK :D

Just loaded Mint Debian Xfce onto my testing PC today, it's very nice looking, and no major show stoppers yet so I'm gonna start making it my own and see what happens.
