I am new to mint/ubuntu and well debian in general, I use to swear by mandrake/mandriva years ago so I do have some knowledge about linux. I am playing around with your RC1 and comparing it to xubuntu. I really like most of the mint addons but they have raised a few interface questions.
First, I am finding Mint a lot slower than xubuntu, I have read a post about memory leaks and am wondering if it has been addressed in any of the patches I installed in the updater or is it still final release type deal.
Next, is there an easy way to modify the Mint menu, I would like to remove about xfce and move Run down to above help below settings. Also on the desktop is there a way to center the text of icons and disable right click launch in the mint menu?
Next, this one isn't that important as it is probably cpu speed related but a general youtube video in firefox doesn't play smoothly at all.
Finally, I can't get the sound to work at all, I have tired everything I can think of setting wise and hardware manager does list it correctly.
I would like to thank you for making a lot easier to use linux and look forward to installing the final stable on my buddies system to stop all the virus and spyware calls for help I get.

Note: I know this system is really old but my buddies is only a bit better so that is why I revived it. All he uses his for is web browsing, email, msn messanger , and Open Office, possible windows file/print sharing so I am trying to create a environment like that and as similar to windows 2000 interface as possible but I don't expect performance miracles. Thanks in advance and any suggestions are welcome.
