I'm 25, and a university graduate considering a freelance job. I would've gone by my usual screen name Subnormal Halfspy (My friends and particularly close acquaintances call me Subby), but LL's character limit on the computer username made me decide to use my other nickname instead. I do art for a hobby right now, and I work best with vector graphics. Inkscape is my go-to program for it.

As you can guess, I am a complete beginner with Linux Lite, both the OS and the forum boards-- But I'm definitely familiar with at least the most basic of Linux distribution experience. My ASUS A53S laptop (which has since then seen a replaced motherboard, hard disk drive and RAM upgrade from 4GB to 8GB) has been in use for almost a decade (half of its lifetime spent with my older brother). Windows was pretty much a thing on this laptop back then, but Windows 10's various issues caused my laptop (and by extent, myself) nearly no end of suffering. Decided to have another go at Ubuntu (I used the regular flavor several versions back) via Ubuntu MATE, but I still had issues with it too.

When I heard of Linux Lite, I immediately flashed a USB drive with its live installation and it clicked with me ever since. I can say that this is a nice transition from Windows since I grew up with it, and it's good to see a similar, but familiar desktop environment. I still struggle with some stability issues (being forced to initramfs boot, difficulties partitioning my hard drive to the point I had to return a split drive partition back to the main one, having to run recovery mode after it failing to boot several times), but other than that, I definitely still like it here more than when I used Windows.

I'd probably mostly lurk around and read threads instead of actually posting more since I'm more comfortable with social media, but if there's something particularly interesting going on in the forums or I'll need further assistance with this OS in general, I may hop in once in a while! Pleased to meet you all.
