I came to Linux about 3 years ago, at the age of 75.  Started out with
openSUSE but it just didn't feel right for me.  So then did a little distro
hopping through Mepis, PCLinuxOS, Puppy, Ubuntu, Zenwalk, Mandriva, Fedora,
Pardus - and even GoboLinux.  Some only lasted the live CD stage!  

Finally, I've settled on LinuxMint for both my Desktop and Laptop computers,
although I do, from time to time, dabble with others - just 'cos I'm
curious, you understand :-)

Regards from New Zealand on a very cool Wednesday evening.
