Hi All, New Mint User from Africa

Postby VaughanZA » Tue Jan 22, 2013 2:36 am

Hi Everyone

I am VaughanZA, currently reside in South Africa. For many years I have used Linux on and off; switching between Windows and Mac OS X. Used to be a big Suse fan from back when it was still Suse 7.2 Pro and eventually moved onto Ubuntu.
I have used Linux Mint a couple of times before, however the latest Cinnamon version is quite excellent.

Currently struggling at work with Fedora 18 (shivers) spending half my time fixing the OS; I have already migrated my laptop on Mint 14, next will be my Desktop Machine/TV PC at home and then finally my work machine.

I look forward to getting to know the community and assist in any way possible.

All my best

VaughanZA

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.

Thanks for the welcomes; I couldn't survive any longer with Fedora 18 (4 days enough).
Granted I realise it is a cutting edge distro; which is incredibly quick. However the general support and stablity I will rather stick with Mint
