Hello Everyone

Longtime Windows user here, since 3.x in fact, that recently switched to Linux. I tried out a bunch of distros and ended up sticking with Mint 19.1 and notwithstanding challenges with Firefox inexplicably locking up the entire machine, the experience has been fun, challenging, rewarding and increasingly productive.

I am quite impressed with this community. Further, the Linux space is materially more mature than I ever imagined - comprehensive doc resources, impressive tools, applications, drivers and the list goes on and on. A bit overwhelming to be honest.

Late to the party but eager to learn. Maybe old dogs can lean some new tricks.

Best, Mike
