| would expect in an Ubuntu distribution. 



Linux Mint 8 Helena Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux Mint is indeed a very nice
| distribution, a very stable one. It really
| just works out of the box and is perfect
| for people who donât want to mess with
| their computer to make it work or for
| people who donât like to customize it a
| lot. The menu and mint updater can be
| annoying, at least for me, but it does
| what it promises and looking sexy while at
| it. I perceive a very positive response
| from people about the distro and I feel it
| may actually become the most popular home Linux distro one day, which would only show
| that small communities with good ideas and
| dedication can yield a better product than
| sponsored or corporative distributions.


Linux Mint 8 is Perfect for me

,----[ Quote ]
| Over the last 12 yrs that Iâve been using
| Linux never has a distribution impressed me
| this good. I keep Linux Mint 8 is Perfect for
| meexperimenting with distributions when they
| are released. From Mandrake to Mandriva,
| Redhat to Fedora, SuSE to openSUSE and even
| Debian to Ubuntuâ I thought I had seen it
| all. All the time I kept coming back to SuSE,
| but this time it seems different. I tried
| Linux Mint and I guess I will be sticking to
| it for long.


The wonder of Linux Mint - non birdy

,----[ Quote ]
| Finally got my new ebay-bought laptop up and
| running after a multitude of problems, and
| I'd like to say a few words to my fellow
| nerdy sorts, and any of those who dabble in
| other operating systems.


Linux Mint 8 (Helena) KDE Community Edition Release Candidate

,----[ Quote ]
| I have previously described Linux Mint as
| "Ubuntu plus all the stuff you would probably
| add to it yourself after installing". Of
| course, you need to be aware that a lot of the
| things which are added are proprietary or
| otherwise non-FOSS, so if you are a
| GNU/Linux/FOSS purist, you should be aware of
| that at the beginning. I am not of that
| persuasion, and Mint is one of my two favorite
| distributions (SimplyMEPIS is the other). Now,
| with the quality of Mint and the care that the
| Mint Community contributors have taken in
| adding KDE 4.3, this is sure to be an
| excellent distribution. If you are a KDE
| devotee, and you have been disappointed by
| Kubuntu (I know that a lot have), I would
| strongly encourage you to take a look at this
| distribution.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
