Count me as another excited Mint user that wants to put my AMD Althlon 64X2 Processor and board to full speed :-) The weekend is almost here. Thank you also Clem.

How come they don't wanna report on all the cool Mint releases? They coming out too fast?

Hi,
I have now installed Elyssa64RC1, on the first impression i like it a lot. And i have found my personal argument to use 64bit, better RAM support. Because i use virtualbox a lot, for the programs they don't work on linux, to play older Windows games, to see Internet sites that don't show correctly on Linux......
And for that a good Ram support is very important.

But know that we have a Mint with 64bit, will Mint6-64 come out at the same time as Mint6-32, or must i wait more time??
Sorry for my BAD English!!

The main edition will always be the main :)
But as it is relatively simple to make the 64 bit version it may come soon after

Any word when Mint 64 goes gold?

Been running it for a week and it's pretty damn sweet :cool:

I haven't run into any major problems nor bugs that I can tell so far, rolled my own kernel, sweet no issues.Image

I'm also running VMWare 6.5 Workstation 64Bit on Mint64 without any noticeable problems. BTW the new VMWare 6.5 Workstation totally kicks but, supports DirectX 9 :cool: I haven't messed around with games on it as yet, but I will be ;)

Clem will start working on the "gold" version on Monday or so and soon after that I think because I have not seen any serious bug reported
Edit//Should have written "gold" version of main on Monday and then the 64 bit comes just a few days later

That are very good news Husse. For the moment i use my own mixed-64-system, that works great, but I'm a little jealous when i see the FeliciaRC1 (32bit) on my laptop. Felicia is a very great Version.
