LMDE Makes Me Happy!

Postby NewDisciple on Sat Jan 01, 2011 8:57 pm

As the title says, LMDE makes me happy. I have been searching for an Ubuntu replacement and when the 64 bit version of LMDE came out I made my pick. It installed easily and detected all hardware. No problems.
I can't figure out where Ubuntu is going, I just don't want to go with them. :D

Makes me happy too. It really just works well once configured and it stays out of the way. I love it! Welcome to Mint :)

I have been waiting for the 64 bit version as well. Could not have said it better about Ubuntu. i was a Ubuntu user and just did not have an idea where it was headed. LMDE 64bit is working just fine on my Dell E6400 and using a docking station.

I'm with you guys. LMDE 64 is the best distro for me. (been on Ubuntu for five yrs.) I'm using a Dell Studio 17 and it works great. 8)

Thanks Clem, and the Mint team.

One more happy guy here!
I've been using Linux for 6-7 years. Mostly Fedora and Ubuntu but have experimenting with Debian for a while and found that LMDE 64 gives me all the extras I want plus a friendly forum!

I'll echo your sentiments, except I started with Fedora but wanted something that didn't require a re-install or upgrade every 6 months or so; though I learned a lot in the process!

I wasn't thrilled with the learning curve yesterday when I was trying to set up apache2 as a localhost with a couple of virtual hosts. The Debian config files are a bit different than how it's done in Fedora or Red Hat. And the tutorials I found online such as this one: http://www.control-escape.com/web/configuring-apache2-debian.html don't mention to add the localhost IP's and virtual host names into the /etc/hosts file, but I finally remembered that bit and now I'm a happy camper again. :D

A thread like this one is pretty exciting. Seeing three new members posting about how pleased they are with LMDE is good stuff.

Welcome to New Disciple, ccroom and Hillbilly. I'm happy you've found LMDE to be as good as it is. I'm running the 64 bit version on this machine and the 32 bit version on the machine right next to it. And I'm really pleased with how well it works on both boxes.

I too love LMDE x64 and would be even happier with a KDE4 DE....or a good how to on a clean install of it....

Clem has a winner, and I see it taking over the Ubuntu version.

I was one of the Alpha testers for Ubuntu (keyword---"WAS") & I DID NOT LIKE the direction that Ubuntu was taking---I had some uncomfortable interchanges with developers (to the effect "we don't care--that's the way Mark wants it & thats final!)......So I had heard that Mint was also "breaking" with Ubuntu & going Debian main---I really liked that & D/L'd the 64bit install---installed it & here I am.
