Welcome aboard :)

I am too into electronics, have been designing circuit boards, but nowadays mostly repair old machines using my mobile workshop. Been a teacher too :)
Been using "Mageia" as main OS since Mandriva 2006.

For electronics, i guess you have already found we package KiCAD and some other engineering programs like FreeCAD, see more at https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=531

Hello lovely people!

I am new to using Linux; I chose Mageia for my first distro, and I am enjoying it very much.

I'm attempting to get rid of and away from everything Microsoft and google related, ASAP. My next step after accomplishing this (it wasn't toooo difficult) on my laptop is to figure out how to root my phone and get an open source distro on there. :)
Baby steps... but big steps.

Cheers,

For the phone OS check out /e/
I am happy with it on my phones (Fairphone 3 and an old Samsung as reserve)

Thanks, Isadora!
I'm enjoying my adventure so far - man what a learning curve!
I particularly enjoy the fact that it comes with so many great apps and tools ready to go. I was just playing with the video editing program and it was working flawlessly. Before, using Win8 on this ancient Dell notebook, it was impossible to have any video editing software open for more than 5 minutes without major lagging, freezing, crashing. The laptop couldn't handle it.

Now it's like I have a new laptop. Freaking magic!

Hey Morgano, appreciate the link and suggestion. I was putting it off because it seemed too complicated to root my phone, but now it seems like it's imperative for my sanity and safety. I have a backup samsung to try with before doing anything to my main phone, so... here goes. :)

Hi Everyone!

My name is Rick and I've been using a flavor of Mageia since the Mandrake days. I honestly can't remember when I switched from one of those Redhat distributions that used to come in those big, fat, Linux books as a cd. I try to put Mageia on everything I can get my hands on. It's been a wonderful experience and great fun to learn.

Hello, isadora! Hello, all Mageia members! Thanks for the moderators for approving my post. Honestly I am very interested to Mageia not only because I was a former Mandriva user, but also because Mageia in fact had complete, professional documentation (even just seeing it made me feel like home). Gratitude to all Mageia developers for this amazing computing experience.

Regards,

Gnumax

Hello everyone!
My name is Rob but I go by Fitz (It's from one of my favorite book series, if you can figure it out you get extra bonus points), I've been using linux since around 2019. I'm interested in technical things as a hobby, I went to school for human physiology so nothing even close to related.
Mageia is one of the first distros I used but I was a bit lost honestly and I did a lot of distro hopping. I used OpenSUSE tumbleweed for the last year and I've decided I wanted to be part of a project that is more of a community that I feel I can contribute to. Reddit pointed me to Mageia so, here I am.

Side note, I think the naming and branding of Mageia is incredible (even though it's blue and not green) and I'm going to do my darndest to get Mageia more spotlight in the Linux community.
