I've been with Linuxmint for some time. I have read the article in the latest issue of Linux Format (148), "Inside Linux Mint" - which is very good and gives me an insight into Clement Lefebvre, Jamie Birse and Kendall Weaver. I currently have two computers in my computer room which have KDE Mint 10 (Julia) on my main machine and my Gnome Desktop Linuxmint 10 (Julia on my other, 'second-fiddle' machine. Upstairs, in the spare bedroom I now have two different models of Apple Macintoshes - given to me by my son before he moved out to go to University in Norwich. If you are a newcomer reading this - you are onto a winner as this Distribution of Linux is superb and has your best interests at heart!
