As a "free OS distros" lover I have downloaded a few releases of Mint these past 3 or 4 years but I never installed any on my desktop.
Living in a 3rd world country with no internet connection at home, one of the reasons which make me choose a distro is the availability of offline repositories on DVDs. That's why I first switched from RedHat 8/9 to Debian. Then I discovered the Ubuntu DVDs at http://ftp.leg.uct.ac.za/pub/iso/Ubuntu ... kages-DVD/ and ftp://kambing.ui.edu/iso/ubuntu-repository/hardy/
Here comes the aim of my question: are there any offline repo DVDs for Mint and if not can I use the Ubuntu Jaunty ones with an installed Mint 7? will not there be conflicts between versions of the packages?
The answer to this question will probably help me choose the next OS for my Desktop.
Thanx in advance.
