  1. Good morning. Just introducing myself!
    I've just registered into this forum. I'm 44, I've been in love with computers since
    1989, the times of MS-DOS, I've witnessed the raw beginnings of Windows, the
    rise and fall of computer brands, and the fall and rise of Apple :eek:)

    I am a mexican citizen, I live in Chihuahua, México (just south of the US border).

    I'm in love with my notebook, an HP DM1, based on the new AMD E-350 APU
    (netbook on steroids I call it :D ) and my "other" machine is a self-assembled
    desktop with a Gigabyte AMD 785G-based chipset, AM3 socket with a 3-core
    Phenom. 4 GB Corsair RAM, and a Samsung monitor.

    They are modest machines, so I try and keep them heavily tweaked and bloatware-
    free, so they work really nice. (side note: I have assembled my own desktop PCs
    since 2002).

    On both of them I've installed Win7 Pro 64-Bit. The desktop dual boots to OpenSuse,
    and the notebook dual-boots to Linux Mint.
    I decided to stop using Ubuntu since 3 versions ago, and although technically Mint
    is Ubuntu-based, in my opinion is a world of difference.

    Other distros that I've used to find the one that I liked, were: Mandriva, Xubuntu,
    Lubuntu, Kubuntu, used Lindows (later called Linspire because of M$ lawsuit),
    Fedora, Puppy, Vector, and Meego, Linpus on my previous netbook. Not bragging,
    but just talking about how hard is sometimes to find what one really likes.

    I stumbled upon Techspot this morning that I was reading news on the Google
    News and there was a tech note issued from Techspot. When I clicked on it to read
    the note, I noticed at the botton of the page some posts from this forum. It looked
    pretty interesting, so I registered, I plan on learning a lot from you guys and help
    whenever I can.

    Cheers, and have a nice day.
