Hello from walt
« on: April 11, 2015, 11:12:06 AM »
I watched a video that led me to this forum.
I like it, so I have joined.
Currently an Ubuntu user.  Interested in other distros.
Cheers,
joy, walt

Hey welcome to the community!

My favourite distros are Scientific Linux, Crux, Linux Console and FreeBSD (Not Linux but I thought it was worth mentioning)
You could give those  try.

I used Ubuntu for about six months, have just switched to Manjaro Cup of Linux Edition about a month ago. I found the learning curve to be laughable and the performance increase incredible (and kwin for desktop effects are just cool as can be.) Do some distro hopping and have fun. I learn something everyday from this forum and community that words fail to explain. I hope you get as much out of your time here as anyone.

(there is nothing really wrong with Ubuntu as contrasted with Win%*^s)
Who remembers when Mandrake was huge?

A big THANK YOU to all the above for such a warm welcome.
It feels like home already!
I just downloaded Manjaro-MM-0.8.11-i686.iso and plan to start playing with it
soon as I organize and save all the info I do not want to lose.
joy, walt

Yep.... Always a good idea to backup your files... I prefer to have my /home directory on a separate partition. This is handy in case I want to have all of my files and settings available for reinstallation or if I need my settings to become portable.

Thanks for the tips Spatry.  I currently have a partition for data and another for system backup.

Thanks for the invite Teddy.  It will probably be worth visiting especially when I begin installing a new distro.
