Greetings from Germany

Postby hjalda » Mon Oct 29, 2012 12:03 pm

Hello everybody,

my name is Anna, I am 27 years old and a business analyst, living in Munich. I decided to use linux as my main operating system a while ago, but didn't really find the time to actually switch. My husband is celebrating right now, because my notebook is the only remaining windows system in our household. He is a fanatic gentoo user and he tried to convince me for ages, to switch to linux.

I was using slackware a few years ago on my old notebook, but after it died I did not make a new attempt to install linux. I'm curious about this distro and hope for much fun and joy exploring mint linux :)

Kind regards,

Hi Anna, 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.
