Bonjour from Canada

Postby pascale » 07 Apr 2014 04:48

Hi SolydXK community!

SolydK is my first Linux distro, just installed on my computer. I've been reading reviews and trying live USBs here and there for the last few months, and Solyd just seemed like the best (and the linux action show finished convincing me!).

I work in university and we teach proprietary software all the time, pretty bad, I know, so here I am exploring something new.
I'm enjoying Solyd so far, and I've got lots to learn as I know nothing about Linux, but gotta start somewhere!

Hi Pascale, and welcome to our forum!
You're at the right place to start learning Linux, and if I might say so, this is the most friendly community there is. So, don't hesitate to ask if you're stuck.

SolydXK needs you!

Hello Pascale,

I have to agree with Schoelje - this is a very friendly community. I've been a member of more than a few forums and this is probably the most friendly of the lot.

As for knowing Linux (or not knowing it :)) Joing the club. I'm so new to the whole thing I don't even know how much I don't know! But, with the help of zerozero, and zill, and wisemagic, and .... the list is just too long .... I'm learning something every day!
Quoting zerozero, "The usage of PPA's in debian-based
systems is risky at best and entails serious compatibility
problems; usually it's the best way to destroy an install"

Welcome to SolydXK, I'm sure you will enjoy your stay and learn a lot. Unlike other forums where if you ask something and have to sometimes wait days or even weeks for an answer or someone gives ya a smart ass remark like that has already been asked, try looking, you will always get a fast polite answer here.

thanks for the warm welcome.
Tone on the forums was one of my selection criteria. There was another distro I was interested in... but I felt like I would be lost and eaten alive on the forum. :D Seems much friendlier to beginners here, thank you for confirming that!

Bienvenue Pascale. I am also from Canada - Bas St Laurent/Gaspesie.

I am really enjoying using solydk-BE. It is very stable, few issues and does everything I want. The forum has also proven to be a friendly and helpful place. Linux is an ever opening learning experience for me and I think for most people so welcome aboard the train.
