Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

To make a long story short - there is some incompatibility with the way Ubuntu and Mint boots and uses passwords so without a password root would be wide open
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

I was having big trouble with a friends old laptop which kept rebooting at the windows screen, after updating the bios and trying a few other things and not getting anywhere, I downloaded Gloria Xfce and low and behold, it worked first time no hassle or trouble whatsoever! (as i expected it to of course ;) )
Congrats on another mighty release! Great work team! Kudos!
