Hello everyone!

I first tried Linux back in college (around 2009), and while I found it interesting, I just never put any serious effort into learning, and I pretty quickly dropped it for Windows.

I've just been getting back into it. I work in IT (basically as tier 1/2 tech support), and I haven't been learning much outside the basics. I wanted something that I could learn at home that would allow me to become more specialized, so I decided to learn more about Linux.

About 6 months ago, I started listening to the Going Linux podcast, and I've started branching out and listening to more. Came across Destination Linux, heard about Peppermint, and decided that's what I'd like to try. Only now getting around to setting it up though.

Also have done a few small Linux-related personal projects and am working on more. So far, I've set-up a Pi-Hole in my home and got an OpenVPN server hosted on Digital Ocean. Now working toward finding a Honeypot or IDS system to put on my home network as well as setting up a "Code-Server" and a Bitwarden server on Digital Ocean as well.

I'm excited to become a part of the Linux community and learn more about the cool and interesting technology/operating system/philosophy/way of life that is Linux and the Open Source movement.

The more I read about Windows 10, the happier I am to be on this side of the railroad tracks.  Linux Peppermint OS, along with this terrific community forum, is a great place to explore and discuss the world of Linux.  Welcome to Peppermint, esquire. :)

Thank you!

Since I'm a relative novice, is there anything I can do to be a good community member?

So far, I plan on paying attention to the forums to learn more (and potentially help with issues in the future). But beyond than that, I don't have any brilliant ideas.

That's it, esquire!  We just try to help each other when we can. ;)
