    Greetings,
    I took the plunge a week ago and bought my first windows phone - the 950xl. I bought my first phone in 1990, so its been a long time coming. This in itself might not be unusual, but I am a Linux guy.

    I first started using Linux in 1991, at the very beginning, so you might think i'd be an android user. Nope. I was previously using a blackberry, but they went android, so a new phone was needed. The 950 was everything I wanted so I thought i'd give it a go. I love it! I don't seem to have any of the problems most users complain about.

    The phone is rock solid and mightily fast. When you scratch the surface (no pun intended) it is such a capable phone and os. I can now see where ms was heading.

    Oh well, that's enough praise for one post:)

    Welcome to Windows Central.

    I'm glad you like your new 950XL.

    I also use Linux in addition to Windows. What is your favorite distro? I use Linux Mint (and no, I didn't download and install that hacked ISO).

    I also use mint at work, but use several ram based (slax, puppy,...) on an ancient pc. I have fun trying to make it run quickly. I like debian as well, it is simple and clean. I run win10 in a virtual machine which works well.

    Sweet!

    I've also used openSUSE, Slackware, Ubuntu, CentOS. I haven't tried Puppy yet.
