a word of encouragment

Postby manchu00 on Mon Apr 28, 2008 11:50 pm

I just wanted to tell you guys/gals that I just installed the fb beta and love it. I like that it is based off of ubuntu. I have an older computer that couldn't give me smooth youtube playback with Gnome or KDE. Xfce was a bit better but still fell short. I have tried all kinds of distros. DSL is fast, but it was taking me to darn long to figure out how to install codecs and programs. I've installed fluxbox with a standard installation of Ubuntu, but its terribly drab. with the fb mint distro, i get the perks of ubuntu, the speed of fluxbox, and the stock look, looks very nice. My videos play without a problem, and i didn't even have to fuss with codecs. Its great. So anyway, i hope you continue to develop this now that Hardy is out. You have a good thing going here. As soon as you put out a distribution release, i'm going to install it, and i'm sure I'll recommend it on the site I am putting together http://www.linuxchurch.com keep up the good work!

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

I second this statement! :D
I really like the beta!!!
Keep up the good work and "Don't lose the suck!" as we say in Sweden, right Husse!? 8)
BTW, the above is an encouraging statement, meaning something like: Tough it out! - Persevere! :!: 8) :!:

I talk to shane awhile ago and he said he was waiting for Hardy to come out.

I completely agree with this.
Linux Mint Fluxbox is something special, waiting to be discovered.
Easy to use without the bloat. It's what linux users and disgruntled windows users have been looking for, and I'm going to make sure people know about his hidden gem.
