Ubuntu Server Edition 10.04 Lucid Lynx: Canonicalâs ISV Priorities

,----[ Quote ]
| Since Ubuntu 10.04 (Lucid Lynx) is a Long Term Support
| (LTS) release, he expects the April 2010 offering to
| attract some new ISVs. Without making any firm promises
| or announcements, Pugh added that Canonical continues
| to work to bring ISVs like Oracle into the Ubuntu
| world. Pugh also cautioned readers not to focus on any
| one ISV, since Canonical is speaking with multiple
| potential partners.


Linux distro mints "Gloria" KDE release

,----[ Quote ]
| For those interested in a non-Linuxer point of view, Bruno Dieter Chan offers
| his thoughts in a July 28 review on TopTechNews, and they are, well,
| luke-warm. After praising the distro for playing all his multimedia files,
| for offering a good web-browsing experience, and for providing reasonably
| fast 30-second boots, the complaints kick in.
| The reviewer was disappointed in the lack of QuickTime support, as well as
| some movie "shudder" effects when he tried to use "restricted drivers for my
| ATI 4850 graphics card." He also groused over having to download a driver for
| his Creative X-Fi card, and then noted that it output audio through the
| motherboard instead of the X-Fi's jack. Also, apparently, Mint 7 didn't
| support plug-and-play with his Canon A400 or fully support his Sansa player.
| "Overall, Mint 7 offers most of the software that an average user needs,"
| concludes Chan. "Though I have issues with the OS, it still can be used as
| a 'light' desktop OS. But if you're going to do more than just Web browsing,
| then it would be better to stick with Mac OS or Windows."


Linux Mint 7 KDE

,----[ Quote ]
| All in all, Linux Mint is a fusion between the usability and tools of Linux
| Mint with the elegance of the KDE desktop. Iâm not a great fan of KDE, but
| the Linux Mint tools certainly help to put this distro above the rest.


Linux Mint 7 (KDE)

,----[ Quote ]
| Suitable For:         Beginner, intermediate or advanced Linux users. Highly
| recommended for beginners.
| Summary:      A terrific alternative to the Gnome version of Linux Mint 7 for
| users.
| Rating:       4/5


Distro Hoppin`: Linux Mint 7 KDE Edition

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux Mint 7 KDE is a worthy addition to the Linux Mint family and is much,
| much better than the previous KDE release. I still prefer the main GNOME
| version over it, but there's definitely an ascending path going on. Oh, and
| with the 4.3.0 version of KDE just released, I can't wait until Linux Mint 8!


Linux Mint 7 âGloriaâ KDE released!

,----[ Quote ]
| Quick steps:
|     * Download the ISO or the torrent.
|     * While itâs downloading look at the overview of the new features and
|       make sure to quickly go through the known issues.
|     * After the ISO is downloaded verify the MD5.
|     * Burn the ISO at low speed and enjoy Linux Mint 7 KDE.


Hands on with Mint 7

| Our verdict: A blessed relief from Ubuntu brown plus the hardware support and
| ease of use, make this a real winner. 9/10.


Linux Mint 7 Gloria â Review

,----[ Quote ]
| I do agree in a controlled environment or for users who donât need
| the âlatest and greatestâ Linux Mint is a great distribution, and I think
| itâs a step above Ubuntu (in both regular user, and enterprise user space).


Linux Mint 7 Is Glorious

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux Mint 7 "Gloria" was released a little while ago, so before it became
| too old of news, I thought I'd take a whack at experimenting with it for the
| sake of netbookers everywhere (and for myself, naturally). As I type this on
| gedit after about two weeks' use, let's just say that the system on my EeePC
| 1000 HE is, for the most part, rather glorious-- pun intended. As a bonus, I
| also got Google's Chromium browser to run on it, so keep on reading to find
| the section on that.


Linux Mint 7

| Linux Mint has been one of my favorite distributions and it remains so. I
| happily recommend to anybody looking for a good desktop Linux distribution.
| It comes with a good bit of software by default, has an extremely attractive
| theme and makes multimedia related tasks quite simple for the user.


Linux Mint 7 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux Mint's purpose was always to be a very user-friendly, simple, and up to
| date Linux and GNU desktop distribution. Besides being based on Ubuntu 9.04
| Jaunty Jackalope (and early on, really just a variant of Ubuntu with
| integrated media codecs, and Linux 2.6.28, it also incorporated the highly
| popular open source technology of Gnome 2.26, and Xorg 7.4.


Linux Mint 7 (Gloria)

,----[ Quote ]
| So far everything has been running smoothly with the only minor issue I have
| is that sometimes, things seem to load slowly like Firefox for example. This
| could be attributed to some of the addons so Iâm going to check those by
| eliminating them one by one to see if thereâs a difference.


Linux Mint 7 ScreenShots

,----[ Quote ]
| Here we bring you yet another set of Screen Shots, but this time it is of
| Linux Mint 7 ( Gloria ). Let me start off by saying this... I've been
| using/managing Linux for almost 11 years now and I want a desktop that just
| works.. I am so out of that phase on making things work together ( Unless it
| is programming ). Linux Mint has done that for me, so I really want to say
| THANK YOU to Linux Mint Staff and Users for all the work you guys have done
| and for taking the time to make my life easier.


Review: Linux Mint 7

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, I'm very impressed with Linux Mint 7.  It's once again outdone
| itself and easily holds the title as one of the best new user distributions
| out there.  When I first loaded it up, I was worried that they had reached
| their pinnacle and Mint 7 would be their first step down as every distro does
| after a while.  Some just sooner than others.
| But nope, Mint 7 is still climbing the mountain to bigger, better, greater,
| faster, and more awesome than all of it's predecessors.  It's always
| encouraging to see a distro always getting better, despite how good it was
| before.


Getting to the root of Ubuntu.

,----[ Quote ]
| Well I am one of those who went to Debian after using Ubuntu, Kubuntu to be
| exact. In my case I did a complete reinstall from scratch. Just the other day
| as I was squeezing my personal installation into the latest testing mold it
| struck my mind that if I could do this sort of work easily with aptitude then
| why not try and convert Ubuntu to Debian.


Linux Mint 7 released

,----[ Quote ]
| Clement Lefebvre from the Mint development team has announced the release of
| Linux Mint 7 (code named Gloria). Linux Mint is an Ubuntu-based distribution
| that aims to be user friendly and provide a more complete out-of-the-box
| experience by including support for DVD playback, Java, plug-ins and media
| codecs. The release is based on Ubuntu 9.04 (aka Jaunty Jackalope), the
| 2.6.28 Linux Kernel, X.org 7.4 and GNOME 2.26.


Linux Mint 7 "Gloria" - It Just Keeps Getting Better

,----[ Quote ]
| There are other Mint utilities, such as mintBackup and mintNanny, but the
| bottom line is, if you are looking for a solid Linux distribution, you can't
| do better than Ubuntu, and if you want it to be better packaged and easier to
| use, then Linux Mint is definitely worth a look.


Sooner (Linux Mint 7), Later (Fedora 11) and Now (ooVoo 2.1)

,----[ Quote ]
| It looks like Linux Mint will be making their next release, 7 or "Gloria", in
| the next few days, according to the Linux Mint Blog. This is good news,
| because the new release is based on Ubuntu 9.04 "Jaunty Jackalope", which
| means you will get OpenOffice 3, and quite a few other nice updates. Of
| course, there are lots of Mint-specific updates as well, many of which look
| very nice. I've been running the Release Candidate for a couple of weeks now,
| and it is very good.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
