Impressed + Happy = Mint Nadia

Postby dreamerman » Sat Apr 13, 2013 8:48 pm

Have been a life long Win user. Currently running Win7 on all my machines at home. Have tried various distros over the past 3 or so years and always given up at the end, mainly due to hardware incompatibilities and pushing the boundries of my non-existant Linux knowledge. Decided to check out Mint after reading glowing reviews. Long story short, I have 64 bit Nadia Cinnamon running off a 16GB USB2.0 flash drive. I have Remmina (remote desktop to a headless machine) and Samba (joining a Win7 home network) running which are most important for me and I managed to achieve that without using command line. Next is to get my digital camcoder working which I don't think its going to be a problem.

By the way, from GRUB menu to login screen took just under 2 mins. My flash drive isn't the quickest (read 13.3/write 4.4) and my main machine is only a dual core. Will keep running from flash drive for say a month before I make a full local install.

In short I am extremely impressed and many thanks to the community.

Welcome aboard. I was a lifelong Windwoes developer. Heck, I worked on beta Windwoes 1 back in '83/84 while working for the now defunct Ashton-Tate on dBase I. So it's a big step, and I certainly haven't looked back. Once you start to get more confident the yearning for Windowoes dies, and Mint's ability to function right out of the box certainly helps.

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.
