Hi all,
new to the forum and new to SolydXK.......was looking for a good Debian derived OS to run on a Lenovo Ideapad 320......and I found SolydXK via distrowatch.

I have been using unix/linux since around 1999/2000 so have seen a huge step forward in the last few years. I like to experiment with things ....the worst that can happen is to need to reinstall from scratch!!!!!

I run three laptops , one debian , one fedora , and now one Solyd.

I hope to be able to offer any help to anyone new to linux and am always keen to see people take the first step.

I will try to be active as often as possible ..........

And also .....thanks again to Arjen for making it happen. I can only begin to imagine the many many hours of passion and dedication you have put into this project.

EDIT: I should also thank the other team members too and all those in the community for their contributions. :lol:

Welcome to the forum, rossroot! You will find that this is a quiet forum, as this distro is mmm... Solid!
Like you, I started using Linux at 1999, but feeling as a newbie, learning something every day.
Are you using SolydX or SolydK?
Thanks in advance for your contributions.

Welcome from sunny Aberdeenshire.(sometimes!)
You will observe from the few forum queries that it is a reliable system.

Thanks for the welcomes!
I am currently using X , due to my expectations that KDE would overwhelm the already fragile Lenovo!

The fact that you both mention that the forum is a peaceful place is even more impressive to me.

I think I have finally found what I have been looking for in the past 20 years!!!!
