I was an debian/RHE/FC/Ubuntu user and got sold on Ubuntu 7. But just as soon as I finished my install, updates, and basic customization, I found You lovely easy and preconfigured Mint. Ahh bliss at last. Wireless works out of the box with not a single button to push other than "configure" "dhcp" "ssid" and blamo. Updates were few, and took only a minute. Flash was already installed and working, and then I had to go to work. God I can't wait to see what else is already working without hours of configuring. Thanks guys for stepping up and making the ideals that Ubuntu embraced even better.
I have spent time when I could the past few days perusing the forums, but I do have a quick question though I must admit I have not searched for it yet - its simply a curiosity: I could have swore I read on the website that nvidia was preinstalled however, having a GeForce 6800GS, when I first ran the live cd it used the NV open source driver like ubuntu and FC do but NV doesnt work, only the nvidia driver or vesa does. So I did the normal atl f2 commandline, changed the xorg.conf to vesa and restarted X which brought up the gui. When I installed it, it installed the vesa driver and also the nvidia driver module within the generic kernel. I guess my question is a.) does it install whatever driver is currently in your xorg.conf during the livecd session when you actually install? and b.) is the nvidia driver available during the livecd session, and if so, what is the command to type in the options line during the initial option choosing before the livecd loads a session? Thanks guys, and great job on the OS
