Xubuntu Lucid

| So just for giggles I got the newest 
| version of Seamonkey and installed it. Hey! 
| The mail client is almost exactly like 
| Thunderbird 2.0, and the browser, 
| omygoodness â itâs faster than Firefox! 
| Heheh. I got a bonus! Iâm a happy boy 
| again, and my inner geek can just find 
| something else to go do with himself. I 
| dunno, go watch Star Trek or something. I 
| got a life to live, and an operating system 
| that fits the bill.


Upcoming Artwork for Linux Mint 9

,----[ Quote ]
| Clement Lefebvre proudly announced two days 
| ago (April 21st) the plans for the artwork of 
| the upcoming Linux Mint 9 operating system. 
| Dubbed Isadora, Linux Mint 9 will be based on 
| the unreleased Ubuntu 10.04 LTS (Lucid Lynx) 
| operating system and will include some new and 
| beautiful artwork. The most important thing to 
| mention is the fact that the window buttons in 
| the title bar will remain on the right side!



Returning to Linux, Round 2...Mint

,----[ Quote ]
| I always likes the ideas within Mint...make
| a good package better by adding little
| features and taking out what isn't
| necessary. I remembered from the day that
| everything just worked. Websites played
| flash, video on DVD would play with audio,
| documents opened without too much effort or
| downloading extras. So what else is here
| that most people would like to know about?


Ubuntu vs. Linux Mint

,----[ Quote ]
| I recently heard the comparison that Mint
| today is a lot like Simply Mepis was years
| ago, and I feel its accurate. Barring my
| personal lack of hardware support (this
| included fan control which is vital on a
| metal Macbook), Iâve heard great things
| including more extensive printer support, and
| after using it for a little bit I felt that
| aside from the menu, that I think might in
| fact be harder for a new user, Mint is a good
| distribution.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
