Hello from Indiana

Postby koolaid_kid » Thu Oct 18, 2012 7:22 am

My name is George. My roots go back to DOS, where I used to teach college courses in it. I have also used Unix on Sun platforms. I was pretty miffed when XP pretty much took that functionality away, and I am glad to be back in the command line environment. I have an older, separate machine that I ran Ubuntu on for a year or so, recently converted it to Mint and I am much happier with not only the UI but the functionality of Mint over Ubuntu. I am also continuing to learn all the various nuances of Linux and am pleased at all the information I am finding online.

Hi George, welcome to the Linux Mint forums :D Thanks for joining the forums!

Be sure also to check out the Community website (tutorials, hardware and software reviews, ideas), and, if you picked the Cinnamon edition, the Cinnamon Spices website for adding even more themes, applets and extensions to Cinnamon.

You can also chat in real-time with other Linux Mint users. In the Mint Menu, in the Internet section, start the application XChat IRC. You will automatically get connected to #linuxmint-chat for general chat and #linuxmint-help for support with other Linux Mint users.

Have fun with Linux Mint.

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.
