Hello everyone

Post by sanity rising »

I'm new...ish to this although i have briefly dabbled in the past it has always been a bit daunting to take the plunge. But i can happily say i am enjoying my Mint experience now i have got to grips with some of the very basics. I have a lot to learn and always wanted something other than windows. In fact the only thing that was stopping me was a game that wouldn't run on Linux systems...until a bit of research about how to get Unity3d player to run and hey presto i can now play it and have an os that does what i want it to do, when i want it to do it. Pus it is faster than my Windows 7 ever was.

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.

sanity rising,
there is no place like this place anywhere near this place--so this must be the place.
