Hi SolydXK users. I come from Scotland (A Scot with one t :lol: )
I Have been a serial distrohopper for 6years. Lately it has been less frequent as I have a set of apps I want installed so I have been searching for 'The One'.
Before I stopped using my 10 year old pc 2 years ago I ran debian testing and sid which I loved. My laptops since have had frequent linux changes but now I have come across SolydXK testing I feel the buzz again. Thanks guys keep up the great job and I aim to stick it out with you.

Welcome Hutch!

I haven't got a lot of Linux experience, having started last July, but spent my life and work in the field. Did some hopping around myself, but knew a good thing when I saw it, and made the place home. I still multiboot and play with others for fun and education, but Solyd is primary on everything I have, as it has always run happily on anything I throw at it. I don't have anything new yet (read UEFI), but hope to do a new build soon.

The community here is one of the best! Glad you made it.

-- Dave

Hi Hutch - Welcome!

I'm a Scott as well, but with two "t" :D

I hope you enjoy your stay with us and that it's a long and comfortable ride!

problems; usually it's the best way to destroy an install"

Hi Hutch and welcome to the forum! Forgive me for I am not a Scot/t, therefore I have no T s! :lol:
You should enjoy your stay regardless as there are a bunch of good people here.
