Hello, i'm new. I really like linux mint, i love the included codecs, flash, etc. But i think that the mint experience could be improved:
- Plymouth should be included: People in Fedora, are using this now, and i think that is better than usplash
- Updated repos: Like fedora not like ubuntu
- Not include screenshots in Package manager: In small screen resolutions, the screenshot plus the review, makes impossible to read the description. I think you should make the interface more minimalistic
i think is time to cut the cord, from ubuntu. Nowadays, linux mint is not ubuntu. I think that if linux mint keeps behind ubuntu, it will never separate from it, it would be "another ubuntu derivated"
PD: im not a fedora fan but i have to recognise that innovations in fedora are great. For example when firefox updates, it doesen´t enter inmediatly to ubuntu's repos it takes about a month to enter. I think that linux mint is big enough to have it's own repositories
