Howdy ya' all! I'm an expat Canadian living in Houston, Texas. I have just ordered the latest version of Vector and am looking forward to it's arrival by mail soon.
Hopefully it will help revive my old HP desktop. Vector is not the first flavour of linux I've used, I have installed a few flavours of Ubuntu, one OpenSuse 11.1 (the experiance I'm sure was the fault of my machine and me and hopefully not an indication of OpenSuse overall...
) and lately with Linux Mint.
I'd have to say I was most happy with Ubuntu and am quite happy with Linux Mint. No complaints really there but they are not a perfect match with my old war-wagon and my lack of computer programming experiance. So... I'm taking a plunge deep into Vector and I look forward to the successes and yes, even the challenges that are sure to come.
I may not know everything about computers but I can read, I love the concept AND application of opensource and I don't mind tinkering around a problem until I get it right.
I will be dual-booting with Windows XP and will ask questions about that in a seperate threat since this is for introductions not big questions.
I'll be lurking around until then, talk to ya'all later eh'?
