How stable is Linux Mint 4.0 Daryna KDE CE BETA 044?

Postby shengchieh on Sat Mar 01, 2008 2:56 pm

I will soon take a bunch of distros (fedora, dreamlinux, mandriva, etc) for a spin. I noticed there is
- Linux Mint 4.0 Daryna KDE CE BETA 044 and
- Linux Mint 3.0 Cassandra KDE CE
I don't particular like installing a beta version, but the Daryna version looks 1/2 year newer than the Cassandra version
and probably has more features. How stable is the Daryna version? Bottom line: Which version do you recommend?

Also, what does 044 means? the 44th beta edition???

Background: I'm no geek, just a long time linux user (Mandrake 9.0, Xandros 10, 2.0, & 3.0 OCE, PCLinuxOS 2007, and MiniMe 2008). So trying
another distro doesn't freak me out. But I don't like to hassle with major problems.

Thank in advance for your comments.

Yes - it means the 44th beta - only two has been released. Every little step on the road is numbered and so we get this number
It's as stable as the release version, but wait a day or to and the final version will be there - it's being transferred to all our mirrors right now :) (or am I not to say that :))

It's nearly as stable (read the release notes). As for 044 it's basically the build number.

Possible errata on http://www.linuxmint.com/ . As of 10:52am PST, I see both

- Linux Mint 4.0 KDE CE released
- Daryna KDE Community Edition BETA 044 released

I also noted the GNOME edition missing. Maybe "Linux Mint 4.0 KDE CE released" was put in the wrong place?!?

p.s. Downloading soon (fouled up 1st time - my fault)

No, these are the last announcements... the Main edition was released much earlier than that.
