Hello There!

Postby JinzoDefiler » Sat Apr 09, 2011 4:07 pm

Im a long time Linux user and recently discovered Linux Mint Debian. Ive been through many of a distro starting with Red hat 9. I wanna thank the release people who made the best mix of Ive seen with a Debian based system with an Ubuntu/Mint like system. I like the fact that you use the wheezy testing repository. Its alot more stable then sid which I have used in the best but frustration always got the best of me for broken packages... ya compiling a library for the 50th time isnt my exact definition of fun if you know what I mean.

Welcome to the Mint forums JinzoDefiler. 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. There is also an LMDE channel. Just type /join #linuxmint-debian while logged into IRC. Have fun with Mint.
