Heya everyone!

Postby NathanTJC » Sun Jun 26, 2011 2:19 pm

I'm new to Linux, and while researching which distro to use, Linux Mint caught my eye. After trying it (and about 10 other distros) out on a bootable media, I installed it to my computer, and it's here to stay. I'm learning programming as we speak, and hope to help out with some testing and development further down the line. I look forward to getting to know you all! :D

Welcome 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.

Welcome,

If you want to learn Mint better then one of the easiest ways, once you have got your speakers sorted, is to browse the forums on a regular basis (especially "Newbie Questions" and "Installation & Boot" and read the threads. That way you will learn common problems, troubleshooting methods etc that will help you no end in the future.
