Hello guys,

What other operating systems have you used in the past?

I have tried several Linux versions in the past, but did not use them that much.

Well, 25 years ago I did a little bit with an Apple IIe computer in middle school(grade 7 and 8) and somewhere around that time we had a Commodore Vic-20 at home that was slightly modded by my uncle. But other than that, only Microsoft in my history.

I have used about a dozen different operating systems - but all on large systems. E.g DOS/370, MVS/370 etc. On PC's only Vista and Windows7.

You are missing out then! Linux Mint is quite a nice OS. It works with everything right out of the box.
