    Hello, fellow people.

    Hello, everyone. I'm Tom. I've been lurking for some time, and you seem like nice enough people from a distance, so I thought I'd say hello. I'm sure you all know, but this forum's a great resource to many anonymous linux novices like myself who probably never say anything, and just search it for answers forty-five times a day.

    About a month ago, I decided I couldn't reconcile my feelings about corporate resposibility regarding software with my continued use of Windows, so I took a plunge and installed Mint 13 - MATE on my Thinkpad. Having relied heavily on Windows PC's in my education and work, and admittedly been very, very averse to OS change, I was in over-my-head from the word 'go'.

    I'm running the surprisingly novice-friendly Ubuntu 12.04 now, but I'm playing around with other distros, and reading/learning as I go along.

    Hello and Welcome. I prefer newbies to dive in head first anyways. It keeps you from chickening out.

    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.
