I've been trying to switch to 100% Linux for several years but there have always been deal-breakers. Thanks to Linux Mint I've finally managed it. I have a lot to learn after 20 years of Windows but I'm on the way.
Mint 10 RC is fabulous: elegant, beautiful, fast, reliable and it just works.
- For the first time ever I've managed to get the accursed Broadcom wireless on my notebook and my netbook working well enough to be used.
- I've been beating my brains out trying to set up Bluetooth and Internet tethering with my iPhone in Windows 7 to no avail, but with Mint 10: no problem!
- Add in Linux compatible goodies like Nevernote, Dropbox, Google Desktop, Autokey, Quanta Plus, FileZilla et al and open source life is good.
A huge thank you to everyone involved.
