View Full Version : Hello from another newbie

Hi There,

I have tried out various Linux distributions before e.g. Debian, Fedora, Gentoo as well as the BSD variants e.g. NetBSD, OpenBSD and FreeBSD.

Although I haven't installed a Linux desktop OS for a couple of years now, I wanted to say how impressed I was with the simplicity of this one, put CD in, boot and install.

The thing that impressed me the most is the fact that most things worked after a default install e.g. Wireless connection and sound specifically, Both things that I have had real problems with in the past with other distros.

Oh well better go and start using and abusing it now and learning where things are ;)

All the best,
Gavin Jones

Glad to see you had no problems.
Since you are already a debianian, you should feel pretty comfy!
What kind of wireless do you use? Wireless is one thing I have not had tremendous success with.

Welcome! Nice to see another newbie like myself :D. Im wondering also, wireless is something which seems to just refuse to work for me. I'm still battling with it on my laptop.
