I've already posted some questions which were answered by some (thanks for that!). Just found this part of the forum.

Ok, my name is Nomko. I'm from The Hague, The Netherlands, male 40 yr. I've been using computers since mid 90's, somewhere around 1995/1996. I started out with a 486SX50 and for those who don't know this processor type: it is basically a 486 DX CPU without the floating point unit (FPU). With that system i ran DOS 3.3 and later on up to DOS 6.22 till i switched to Win95, Windows NT4.0 (due to some instability with Win95 i switched to Win NT4.0) followed by Win98 and after that used Win 200 Pro for several years. Then used XP for a few years and ditch Windows completely for Linux after getting annoyed and pissed off due to an overkill of malware...

Started in 2007 with Ubuntu 7.04 installing all version after that till Ubuntu 10.04. Stopped using Ubuntu after version 10.04.3 when they introduced the horrible Unity desktop. Started using Mint and ended up with Mint 17 which feels and looks good, they've made great improvements but beside that it feels somewhat bloated and sluggish.

Was reading something about Peppermint OS and i felt like i should give Peppermint a try. Although not really found of the Lxde desktop, the overall look of Peppermint pleases me in some way. So.....here i am!

I won't say i'm a experienced user or a real geek or nerd, i'm a regular user that just happens to know a lot about Linux to a certain level, learning it the hard way.  I always repair my own systems, always putting my own systems together and even a laptop i fix.

I have a desktop system and a MSI GE70-2PE notebook which will replace my current desktop completely.

Hello there, my name is Dobrivoj and I come from Serbia. Yesterday I give a try to Peppermint 6 and I'm pleased how this OS works. I've made a bootable USB stick and tried it in LIVE and as I said I'm very pleased how it works. I've been a Debian user but since Debian has released their new"Stable" crap release called Jessie and turned to dark (systemd) side, I'm in search for a new good distro.And I think I finally managed to find it. Soon I have to bring home "new" computer parts and when I build my PC I will definitely install Peppermint OS
