Hello from Tucson, Arizona

Post by rockn60s » Sun Jun 09, 2019 4:05 pm

Hello to all the good folks in this friendly forum!
I've been observing this forum for quite a while now researching the best way of transitioning to linux from Win 10. I've been able to remove Windows and install linux mint 19.1 on an old pc Dell XPS 720 with the help of this forum and have benefitted immensely from the great help given to other visitors. I've learned how to partition, dual boot 2 versions of linux, and drop the old for the new Cinnamon 19.1 Tessa. Not bad for a 70 year old if I do say so myself :D ! I like LM 19.1 and will continue to learn linux and hopefully be able to contribute to the forum just like you gracious volunteers. Know Ye Well - we appreciate the development team, the guru(s) and all the contributors for your tenacious time and effort to making LM great and this friendly neighborhood called “Linux Mint Forums”.
