Relatively new Linux user from upstate NY here. Basically been bred on Windows since Windows 98, but the latest versions are annoying me with bugs and stuff, so I started playing around with Linux more regularly until I finally decided to go and install it. Started with Mint and Cinnamon--works great for my powerhouse laptop with 8gb of RAM and a core i7 processor, but a little too resource hungry on my less powerful Lenovo 110s. Checked out different distros and I like what I saw with Bodhi despite me having to learn some new tricks to make it work.
So far, happy puttering around and enjoying a less intrusive operating system.
