hello mintforum!

Postby fotonix » Thu Jan 17, 2013 8:14 pm

I have used Mint since Felicia and keep up to date - super OS, love it.

My background is Unix, the old school terminal interface mid-to-large iron stuff. Did lots of database development, admin, ETL work. Seeing Linux take the *nix tradition to the next level with GUI puts a smile on my face.

However I gave all that IT stuff up to do photography. Now Linux is a tool to get a job done.

Joined here to get more involved with Linux Mint and get better access to discussions on tech issues (like my scanner not working).
