Also, the screen-saver and power options should also be considered, because at default settings: users installing each release must babysit their installation and make sure their computers don't power down. I personally found the update-manager particularly annoying and feel this is a must change. What do you think?

I began using Mint 7 about a week after it's release, I was amazed that everything, and I do mean everything worked. It recognized my Windows network, printers, wireless connections, just everything! When I tried Ubuntu it was hit & miss, some stuff worked most not. Since my understanding is that Mint is built on the Ubuntu base how does Clem and his team get a system that is so-so and turn it into something that works as well as it does?
Last night I did the upgrade from Mint 7 to Mint 8 (I have been running Mint 8 in VMware since it's RC was out). I read all of the warnings about doing the upgrade rather then a clean install, but since Mint 8 does't come with Mint4Win this was the easier way to go. The install went good, although very time consuming. The average clean install including downloading &burning the .iso was about an hour. The inplace upgrade took almost 3 hours. This time, like the others, everything worked. The only thing that didn't were some of the Compiz Settings needed to be reset, other than that it was Mint working as usual.
thanks to Clem and all of the Mint team for an outstanding job.

Prové el LiveCD de Linux Mint 8 y funciona muy lento en una vieja computadora que tengo, luego lo probé en mi LAPTOP que no es tan vieja y alli funcionó pero no con la rapidez que tenia Linux Mint 7, definitivamente la nueva versión al parecer heredó los problemas de su madre Ubuntu, espero que Linux Mint 9 de un salto porque de momento fue hacia atrás.

Hey David! You can run Adobe CS to CS4 products on Mint 8 by installing VirtualBox then putting a light weight version of Windows XP in place. I run a minimalist version of TinyXP (do a Google search for an active torrent) in VB. Adobe CS to CS4 programs run perfectly in it.
