Hello from the Mornington Peninsula - AU

Postby oldsmacker » Mon Mar 20, 2017 6:54 pm

Hey guys
Recently installed LINUX MINT 18.1 and have to say i LOVE it.........few road bumps but over all solid beautiful DISTRO.

Still a newbie with line commands and finally have an apache webserver running using XAMPP.......so simple to install and with the GUI shortcut on my desktop makes it simple to start and stop web sever....

also got a Second Life Client running but the wifi is to slow so will have to plug it in via cat6 cable.......

hope i can get some answers to some basic problems here.......A strong community makes a distro a windows killer...... :D :)
