Hi fellow Mint users!
Just wanted to post a note that I am very happy with the latest release of Mint (9). Running on a Mac Mini extremely well. No going back to OS X for this Mac!
I have been a Mac user for...a long time! lol
Probably since about 1990 or so. My first brand new Mac was a Power Mac 6100. Yes, that was a while ago!
I have played around with various flavors of linux in the past (Mandrake, Red Hat, Yellow Dog, Ubuntu, DSL and a few others), but they always seemed like something was missing. That seems to be a reason given by other people who tried different distros and went back to Windows or OS X.
Anyway, I have had a feeling about Apple and it's fearless leader for a while and it seems like that company's behavior in the past few months or longer has really bothered me. From the more and more closed ecosystem of the iPod and more so with the iPad, the Flash fight, the price of a new Mac vs a PC, etc., etc.
I came to the conclusion that I want my computer to be free! Free from Apple and free from Microsoft. From Freedom Came Elegance, so here I am...
I installed Isadora on the Mac Mini and wow! It just works! Wireless works. Sound works. Everything works! Mint seems faster than OS X on the same hardware.
I hope that I can learn as much as possible and help to spread the word about Mint. If Mint works this well on a Mac, it should do quite well on just about any PC hardware.
I want to say thank you for a great distro and I look forward to learning, helping and singing the praises of Mint as much as I am able to.
