Thank you, Kanishka. I have to say that I absolutely LOVE Linux Mint and I think that those who put this distro together have done an excellent job.

While Linux Mint XFCE Daryna CE (4.0) is experiencing birthing pains right now, Mint XFCE Cassandra CE (3.0) is a fabulous XFCE community edition. Everything works out of the box, plus most of the latest Mint innovations are easily installed and integrated.

You just said it: "community edition". Mint has too many flavors, and many of them experimental, so nobody could predict their future.

Have another look, kanishka. Beranger decided to mention Mint XFCE under "Other choices" in a re-update of his article:
http://beranger.org/index.php?page=diar ... sed-distro
Linux Mint XFCE Community Edition: Elegant and (over-)sophisticated, the Ubuntu-based Mint also includes an XFCE edition (single-panel layout, black-green theme, out of the box multimedia support, great configuration tools, impressive choice of packages). Unfortunately, no one could predict the future of a "community edition"...

I'm guessing he tried Daryna beta.

Humm, I hope he'll take a deep look at XFCE Daryna stable then...

Well kick me blarney stones. You guys are from Ireland?

That is so cool. I have a little bit of the Irish in me and have always been very proud of it.

I'm glad to know that Ireland leads the pack in top notch Linux products.
