Wow this great

Postby tuluse on Sun May 18, 2008 1:02 am

I was looking for a distribution which would run quickly on my laptop (a thinkpad with a P3), but was still polished and had a large array of repositories (I like to try out new programs a lot). I was running Xubuntu, which I liked, but I wanted even more speed, and this is perfect. Well, once I started fbpanel it was perfect anyways.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Fluxbuntu is pretty nice. You could try puppy too, it looks okay aesthetically.

I tried fluxbuntu, but I didn't like it that much. I want firefox as my default browser, and couple other "heavier" applications. Also, I felt that Linux Mint was much more polished, which I was looking for.

I felt the same way, Also Fluxbuntu has a different Goal than Linux Mint Fluxbox CE it would seem...

Fluxbuntu is meant to be as Minimal an install as you can get with an Ubuntu based system.

Whereas Linux Mint FbCE is striving to deliver a Full Featured and Convenient, yet Light Weight Ubuntu based system.
With Linux Mint FbCE, you get a lot of features Because they don't just use size as the determining factor of picking software, they balance Size with Usefulness...And look what came out!
