Hi All, I have been using Mint for a few years now.
While I like the software installer module (Forgotten its exact name) I find it is often out of date to newer software releases.
Take Firefox for instance. I have downloaded the package but now see there is a list of BS hoops to jump through in order to instal it.
In Windows its a simple exe, and off you go.
How hard is it to have a standard installer similar to windows exe's
Another thing that I find ironic, is that I have installed Google Picasa under WINE, simply because it is a later and more thorough version than the Linux equivalent.
This is the same with other softwares too. Even Blender that has its roots native to Linux, is much easier to instal in a windows environment. Whats the deal ???
I REALLY want to like Linux, but find it still has some basic annoyances that need refining
That been said, thanks to everyones contributions.
