Hello everyone, this is just great, loving my Peppermint 9 Respin.

I am a full time Carer Support worker from the rather Sunny Isle of Wight.
My first ever Linux Distro was Ubuntu 10.04, way before Ubuntu made the weird decision, to move to Unity.
It was then of course how we see Ubuntu Mate today, apart that it wasn't so full up with stuff as Ubuntu Mate is.
Back then of course Ubuntu was not that easy to get things working, you had to literally build and configure stuff yourself.

Skip ahead Nine years and I must say Linux has come along way, but over the years with all the different Distros I had tried, one Distro stood out in the crowd for me and that is Peppermint OS 7, which English Bob introduced me to, whilst watching one of his videos. Then the upgrade to Peppermint 8, now nine, no matter what other Linux Distro I install, I end up coming back to Peppermint.

Whether it's the stability or reliability of it, all other Distros don't do it for me, like Peppermint does. I live stream, make videos on YouTube, when I'm not working and try my best to help people out here on the Peppermint Forums, though I must add I also help with other Linux Forums too, but this forum is the best one. I  know enough to setup and install Peppermint, Nvidia Drivers, Screen Tearing Issues AMD, Nvidia and Intel drivers and any other gripes people might have, on their own systems, but let's face it Peppermint is that stable, that hardly any problems arise. I'm so glad I could introduce myself and have been reading about other members too.  :) I'm also a musician, play guitar and sing in a Rockabilly, Blues, Jazz band. I'm nearly married, just have to save up for it and pick a day when I'm not working, or saving up for my new computer build. Been with my Wife to be for twelve years, I'm sure she can put up with me for another twelve years? :D Or longer if she prefers, which I would prefer too, as nothing like the love of your best friend, who is always there no matter what. Peppermint is my bit on the side, which takes me away from real life for a while. ;D
