Hello, I'm new

Post by lurkatron » Fri Nov 04, 2011 1:26 pm

hi
new member here, not actually running mint yet, but a ubuntu/xubuntu hybrid, basically ubuntu minus unity plus xfce4-panels
im currently running katya in virtualbox and planning on installing lisa as my main os when its out

ive been reading a lot about mint lately and its really refreshing with developers that listen to the users and even talks to them. im especially looking forward to seeing what MATE will be like, havent been able to even find any screenshots

Welcome to the forums :wink: I hadn't looked for Mate screenshots yet, but it isn't really promising that there aren't any. Is nobody using it yet?

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.
