I read somewhere a criticism of Mint because of the frequent release pattern, and frankly I tended to agree. Even though I enjoy using it (despite my fondness for KDE, I much prefer Mint-Gnome) I have no interest in a distro with a 3-4 month release cycle. However, if you make upgrading available through Synaptic (and it actually works) I will be happy to revise that opinion.
I felt the Mint-KDE release seemed like it was a bit 'rushed', and didn't care for it. It would be nice to think that the emphasis in future releases would be on 'thorough-and-complete' rather than 'quick-and-dirty'.
Just my opinion, for what it's worth. I'm sure the developers have a plan, even if it might not always be apparent to us drones.
