Ubuntu Server 9.10 - Review and Commentary

,----[ Quote ]
| We've already taken the time to do an Ubuntu 
| 9.10 review as well as Kubuntu and Xubuntu but 
| these were all the desktop editions. Today, we 
| decided to try something different and take a 
| look at Ubuntu 9.10 Server Edition and see how 
| easy it would be to setup and configure a LAMP 
| (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) server.

| Linux Mint 8 OS is a great OS for those who 
| want to enjoy near flawless out-of-box 
| experience. It has all the necessary apps built 
| from DVD burning app to Internet browser to 
| office suit, it has it all.

| Running a Linux Mint 8 Live CD, I boot into
| an adorable Linux Mint logo thatâs animated!
| Then the splash screen really grabs my
| attention. I understand Zwopper of the Mint
| community is to âblameâ for this beautiful
| background. Nice Job!

Review: Linux Mint 8

,----[ Quote ]
| In summary, Linux Mint is really a unique
| distro, catering to a wide audience.
| People who just came from windows would
| most like feel comfortable with
| Linux Mint and Linux Mint does really work
| great with older computers They just need
| to do something about Ubiquity.  The
| MintInstall software manager is really
| great, making installing applications
| really a breeze.  IMHO, Mintinstall is what
| we need to break those biased opinions that
| installing software is difficult for Linux
| The MintUpdate is also a Plus point.  Many
| new users screw their systems up through
| updates. ( especially major ones)  This
| surely would help a lot.  I went in with
| the opinion that Linux Mint would be just
| like any other remastered distro, but came
| out changed!    Its really a great distro.
| I personally would recommend it to any one
| who just came out of the windowed world or
| any one who is looking for a light and
| simple system.  Linux Mint 8 is really on
| the right track on making Linux user
| friendly..

| Mint 8 didn't blow me away quite so much as
| their last release. It worked well as far
| as I could tell and there were some
| definite advantages to their package
| selections (lack of Evolution for one). The
| improvements to MintInstall continue to
| make it a pleasant and useful tool.
| I'm not going to immediately wipe my Ubuntu
| Karmic install on the laptop for this
| release of Mint. It might grow on me, but
| for now I'm happy with the parent distro.
| Maybe Mint 9 will have some must-have
| feature for me, or at least a couple of
| games. Hey, I can dream.
