just wanted to pop in and say hi
i`m not a big joiner and know very little about computers
but i sure love the mint debian
it`s given me fun and functions i thought i needed a new machine to get
i`ve `broken` it and `fixed` it several times already.

hopefully a more conservative playing style will help make this one stick

thanks everyone for your helpful attitudes and hard work

i can`t wait for the update screen to change to specific update--what a great idea and ideal for me as i was switching up and down thru the sources list, ending up without screens,keys,sound,and access

but i`m learning

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.
