Just wanted to introduce myself to the community.
I have just landed into MX land.
Happy to be here. This distro seems like one I am going to like. You seem to have a good system here with Stable and ease of getting latest package updates safely.
A little about my Journey with Linux.
I started out a few years ago with Mandriva. When that ended I went over to Mint. I liked the Debian version of mint at the time because it was more of a rolling release and I could use KDE with it. Then they decided to stop supporting KDE and one of the users there developed his own spin and called it Solydxk. I followed them because they were a rolling Debian release. It was too bad they couldn't get more development support and changed to just be Debian Stable. So I created my own Debian that was a testing version with MATE as its desktop. I had been using that for a while and with Steve's help got my compiz working in testing. So I followed Steve here into MX and I think this is where I want to stay now.
Been trolling the forum for a couple of weeks and everyone here seems so nice. The Debian Forum has a lot of talented people there but they don't have much time for people that are not experts with Linux. You can learn a lot there.
I am still learning and packaging interests me but I don't have the time to devote to it. Full time job and family makes it hard to find time.
I will try to help people here if I can. I'm not a programmer but I dabble once in a while.
On a personal note , I live in St. Louis MO area. I am an IT Manager for a Mechanical Contractor here and run their IT department.
It is of course heavily relying on MS. We use some technologies that their back end is Linux run. Our phone system uses Linux as its operating system and our Storage which is Nimble uses Linux as its operating system.
Thanks for reading and I look forward to hanging out here.
Dan
