Greetings from Canada
« on: June 05, 2016, 12:57:35 am »
Greetings, I'm Robert from Canada. I'm new here at Sparky Linux, but I'm a longtime linux user. I first started using Mandrake 6.0 back in the day, and Debian or Slackware based distros are what I'm most comfortable with.

I just downloaded and installed the 4.3 Xfce 32-bit edition to run on my laptop. I look forward to testing it. See ya on the boards.

Hi unohu62, welcome to the SparkyLinux gang  ;D.   I'm pretty new to SparkyLinux myself.  I'm also using the Xfce build, I'm multi-booting it with Peppermint Six and Peppermint Seven RC.  I've not yet used a better Debian based disto.  The SparkyLinux devs have made Debian Testing a very cool thing to use  ;).
