Howdy,  I'm Matt and I have been running GNU / Linux now for about 2 years. I am by no means a power user but over the last several months I have helped 3 people get started with GNU / Linux. I'm really happy Joe started this forum so I can learn more from others and have a friendly place to hang out.

Hi folks. Hat's off to Joe Collins for starting this group. I've been eager to have a forum where EZEELINUX enthusiasts could share ideas and interact about all things Linux. Really glad to be here! Hopefully this will reduce Joe's workload a bit, right?!

Hello everybody,

I'm Alejandro. I've been using Linux on and off since 2011 and full time since 2014. I'm a contributor to the Fedora Project and a FOSS enthusiast. I'm here to learn everything I can and hopefully be of help to anyone who needs it.

Nice to meet you!

My name is Maarten. I am 52 years old and live in the Netherlands.
My first linux distro was slackware in 1997 and to be honest, I had not a simple clue what to do with it.
My first real usable distro I used in 2004 and was Ubuntu.
I am not a real distro hopper, I have been using Ubuntu since day one. Only hopped to Ubuntu Mate when gnome3 came.
Ubuntu mate is still my favorite, but since a short time I am using Ubuntu 18.04 with the gnome desktop.

I have been watching Joe's video for a long time and he was the first youtube channel is subscribed to.
I love the way he presents his video's. Love to hear him talk. And in the meanwhile I learn a few things.

And now he started a forum. So I hope to give some help in return like Joe has helped me with a couple of his video's

Hi
I'm Jon, I'm from England and I have been using Linux Mint for a little over 2 years.

I was introduced to Linux in the mid 1990s,  the first distribution I tried was SuSE 5.1 (When it was SuSE, not OpenSuSE so that is going back a bit. At the time, I thought the system was not user friendly, it was harder to find support and the trend seemed to be to compile software yourself rather than download it from repositories. I couldn't even get it to play MP3 files. I concluded that Linux was not for me, it was too much work and it didn't seem to suit my needs.

Eventually though, I would be drawn back to Linux, and I found by then that it had been greatly improved.

I started out on Linux Mint a couple of years ago, when it was v17.I . I was seriously unimpressed with Windows 10, yet I saw this was the way Windows was going. My friend stuck with Windows 7, and is still using it but there will come a time when Win 7 is no longer supported and Windows users will have to use Win10. Like a good rat, I deserted the sinking ship early.

Previously, Linux had been little more than a curiosity for me, but this point I decided to give it a serious look. I tried Ubuntu initially (the standard version), but I didn't care for the Unity desktop so I looked for something else. That was when I considered Mint.

At first I dual booted Mint alongside my Windows 10 installation, but after a couple of months I took the plunge. I am not as much of a gamer as my friend, the games I had been playing I had lost interest in. There was no software I was using on Windows that I couln't find decent alternatives for on Linux.

I backed up my data files onto a USB hard drive, wiped both my machines and installed Mint as my sole OS.

I now run Mint 19 Cinnamon on both my desktop and laptop. At some point I may find a distro that I prefer, but I will never go back to Windows.

Nice! May I ask what distro are you recommending to new users?
