Loaded onto my Samsung NC10 and have to say works amazingly well. Everything works that is needed and is nice and snappy.

Well done guys.

Awesome job to one and all who worked on this.

:shock: <---- What would cause this? The fact that Gloria (whether Ubuntu's doing, or Mint's doing, I don't know) now recognizes my Creative Zen as soon as I plug it in, and the icon even says so. :mrgreen: With each new Mint release, there are fewer, and fewer reasons to dual boot into Windows.

Within 30 minutes, I had installed Gloria onto my primary partitions, updated, installed restricted drivers, and installed K3b, Amarok, and Audacity. It would have been quicker, but I had too many mount points to type in, for the numerous partitions that I have spread across four hard drives. :)

Once again, great job to all! Makes me wonder what the Mint Team is going to pull off next! Whatever it is, it'll be great, I'm sure.

Just finished installing Mint 7. So far all is top notch (as expected).

As usual, works perfectly on my HP Pavillion Lap Top.

Excellent work by everyone concerned and sincere thanks to you all for your efforts.

One observation though - Is it my imagination, or does Brasero now take twice as long to burn anything compared with before?

Upgrade from LM 7 RC1 not working. I enabled distribution upgrade and refreshed and it said I had an up to date system. Checked 'history of updates' and it's been since the 16th of May that it was last updated.

Guys, don't know what to say but THANK YOU for this release. Gloria runs amazing well and is quite impressive. My hats off to all that built this. Just fantastic. This is by far THE best distribution I have ever installed and I have been into Linux since the mid 90s. Honestly, I really cannot convey how impressed I am with this release. You guys rock.

Well, I've been on board since Daryna, and to me this seems like the best release yet. Everything happens as quickly as or more quickly than it ever has. More to the point, just about everything seems to work--I can't find anything I really need that doesn't work right at the install. The last couple of releases I've had to do a few things to make videos work right, but this time, no need. BBC, NBA, it all just works.

The one problem i still seem to have--and it's really not even much of a problem for me--is that when Compiz is enabled, I get intermittent flickers, just as with Felicia, even with the 180.44 nVidia drivers. I was wondering if this might have changed with a new kernel and new drivers, but apparently not. But I just turn Compiz off and Gnome compositing on, and I don't miss the eye candy.

Congrats to all the devs, nice job :)

Now, the real question, when can we expect KDE Mint 7? :P

I was running LM7 RC-1 and copied all the stuff I wanted onto an USB H/D - INCLUDING the hidden .Mozilla and .MozillaThunderbird files. Then totally removed the partition from the hard drive and made a brand new fresh installation. The next step is to graft all the previously saved stuff - including the two hidden files above. Next re-installed my favourite programs and now have a perfectly running Mint 7.

I have never had any luck with the mint backup programs. This technique is a little messy but does work perfectly.

I posted a link to Gloria in the AnandTech forum at the bottom of a question about whether they intend to ever cover Linux again. There is also a poll asking whether they should revive Linux coverage. Linux Article/ Linux Coverage So far the vote is 2 - 0 that Linux deserves coverage.
