I converted from Windoze to Ubuntu / Kubuntu / Mythbuntu about 2 years ago. I have learned much (compiling drivers for video capture cards, trying to get printers to provide proper color balance, etc.). The final result is always a system that is superior to my many years of running Windoze -- both from a stability standpoint and regarding functionality. But Linux Mint 7 it seems has even eliminated these configuration efforts -- terrific job!!
I must agree with the other 64-bit requests though. I am now in the process of choosing a new distro for my main computer. I do a lot of work with video and virtualization and I need to make full use of my processors and RAM. Of all the distros I have researched recently, it seems that Linux Mint with KDE would be the best fit for me -- except for not having a 64-bit option available
. If anyone has been successful with adding a Minty desktop to Kubuntu (or possibly adding KDE to Linux Mint 64), please post a "How To". With the ever-growing use of 64-bit applications, it seems there are MANY of us who would be highly appreciative!
For me, I am now still trying to choose a distro.
