Hello, my name is John and I been using Linux for six years now. It was not until this year I really started to dive into the real workings of Linux. My knowledge up to this point has been to keep to the GUI side of and make due, but now I want to get into the meat and potatoes of Linux. The friend who introduced me to Linux first started me out on Mandriva, then told me to switch over to Mageia about a year later. I have been using Mageia since Mageia 3 and loving every minuit of it.

Greetings, Robert from Canada here. I'm a long-time linux user, having cut my teeth with Mandrake 6, back in the day For the most part, I've been primarily an antiX or Slackware user, but have distro-hopped quite a bit over the years.

I though I'd give Mageia 6 a spin, having used a 32-bit Plasma edition of ROSA. So far, so good! Looks like a lot of hard work and effort have gone into making Mageia a truly polished disrto.

Well done, and keep up the good work.

Regards,
Robert

Hi there from New Zealand. I am completely new to Linux. I have always wanted to try it for a few years. I have an HP Pavilion t660a desktop which used to run XP. Crashed irretrievably and trial cd of windows 7 beta briefly brought it back to life. The only things that would run were PCUser OS and Ubuntu 8.04. Since then I have put Linux Mint Xfce on it and seeing Mageia, downloaded an ISO and loaded that. What a dream. I am still trying to get connected to the net though. All my posts here are via a Windows 10 desktop. I really look forward to learning to work with Linux.

A very warm welcome solarwarrior!!!! :)

Great to hear your desktop revived to a second life by the magic of Mageia.
For your network-issues you can open (or probably already have opened) a topic in the network-section.

Have magical times around, and when feeling to build together with us, don't hesitate:

And for newcomers i can also advise, to have a look at:

Hi I'm Erik I am hardly a newcomer but never got round to saying hello. Been with Mageia since Mag 4 and just upgraded the other week from 5 to 6. The experience over the years has been Magic!

It has been the first distro which really pushed Windows aside for me. When I sit down to take on a new task I have a great feeling of confidence in it to have the right tools and capabilities to help me achieve my end. Thanks to the whole team well done with the latest release (though I loved 4 and 5 too)
