Greetings!  New to Peppermint, but a lot of experience with Linux and BSD.  I have a desktop PC with Kubuntu 18.04.1 LTS and an old Toshiba laptop that now has Peppermint 9.  So far, so good!

Computer user from way back in 1983, starting with a 16K Oric-1, migrating through many 8-bit machines in Britain, graduating to the Amiga 1200, purchased a PC, went online, moved to Kentucky, USA, and later discovered the joys of Linux.
Felt like I was back in my Amiga days.
Ran Linux Mint from version 6 to 16, then Solus Budgie caught my eye, which I still use on my main laptop.
You can blame stevesveryown and zebedeeboss for my being here. Met them both via BDLL.

Welcome mintspider :)

Thanks mate.
Modified my own post also, as tapatalk confused me, and I thought I was directly replying to someone.

Hello, mintspider.   Yeah, it's fun to watch zebedeeboss and stevesveryown putting various distros through their paces on Big Daddy Linux Live! on YouTube.  Welcome to Peppermint. :)

I loved my Miggy A1200 so much I keep considering buying one, but it always worries me I'm looking back through rose coloured spectacles and it'll just end up sitting in the corner unused .. after a bit of a nostalgic play of course (and probably after spending a fortune on accelerators, etc.)  :)

Hi Peppermint-team and community.

After using Peppermint after the better part of 3 quarters of a year I decided to sign up here. After distro hopping for years I can finally say I've found my distro and am very pleased with it. Thanks to the devs!

I am one of those people who is confined to older hardware due to lack of funds so I can run 32bit only. I have found Peppermint after searching for a "light-weight distro" and found Peppermint in that search. Installed it and was satisfied from the get-go.

Installed on 3 machines:
1) HP Compaq nx 7400 laptop
2) IBM Thinkpad T-60
3) IBM Thinkpad T-42 (non-pae)

Every machine runs as they should, no hickups, no problems...............boring, I know  :D

I will help out where I can although I've seen many people around here who are far more knowledgeable than little old me. Great to be part of this community.

Regards, Pepper9  8)
If it ain't broke.........
