What do you boot Mint with?

Postby xvedejas on Tue May 06, 2008 12:09 am

I'm mainly just curious... I boot Mint 4.0 main with Vista and Ubuntu, but I haven't even touched the windows partition for months...

Mint Gnome (main OS), WinXP (for games) and another Linux distro (I'm going to try Mandriva XFCE) :mrgreen:

OK fellows, don't misunderstand me. :) I only keep Windows for scanner work, that's all. :D
Daryna is number one for me.
Waiting anxiously for Elyssa though.
Using a 20GB test disk, I have Mepis7 as a standby, Ubuntu Hardy, and whatever else I fancy to take a look at.

Cheers

My main machine runs only Linux Mint 4 GNOME. I tend to be old-fashioned and run one distro per system.

Mint Daryna Xfce, Mint Daryna Gnome and Klikit beta, which I'm currently testing. I also have another computer with Win XP for software that will only run under windows.

Mint and more than one other distro. At this moment, Mepis and Etch are also installed. So I guess I would have to choose "Other."

Vista, Mepis 6.5 and Mint Daryna KDE. Vista is on my machine because it came that way and I thought I might need it to help friends but since no one wants Vista I have been too lazy to remove it. I will probably remove it when I go to a larger hard drive.

Mint and Vista(for games). The newer version of wine is letting me play more games. I might wipe it all out with Elyssa!

I want to try BSD. I have the discs and everything, but I just can't be bothered to install it because I'm perfectly happy with Mint.
Right at the very moment, I have Mint as the default, and Fedora 9 Preview is installed on another partition.

I'd recommend trying it out if ya feel confident enough, though some would argue it's a bit too advanced for most people.

BSD can be clancky when you first try to install it.Well at least when you get the basic installation (which for me includes a working GUI enviroment) done it's one of the best OS'es out there.Stable as hell might I add.It's not harder to configure if you've managed gentoo or the likes..

@Ookami
You might want to consider checking out PC-BSD or Desktop-BSD just to make sure you have hardware compatibility.You may even get to grips to some degree with BSD through it.Either way I am a firm believer that BSD differs from linux only below the graphical enviroment(except for the package management).You would encounter differences only if you were to set-up a server etc.

But BSD makes an interesting research all in all.

I do keep win xp on a partition mainly because i help my neighbours when they get into trouble on their pc's, have tried to move them over to linux with limited success but keep trying.

Mint daryna is what i use on a daily basis and i switch to elyssa to try it out and get things how i like so that it will replace daryna and then leave that space for the next mint after elyssa

So right now i have

1st hard drive: IDE

win xp 20gb
Personal partition formatted fat32 with my music and photos 130gb

2nd hard drive: SATA2

linux mint daryna 20gb
linux mint elyssa 18gb (testing)
linux mint daryna kde 20gb
swap 2gb
spare 20gb

Thats how i have it set up right now and i use GAG to boot

Well since I realized I went a bit off-topic the last time I posted here here goes: :roll:

I currently have 4 Computers.

2 Of them are running linux Mint and are the BEST desktop machines I ever had.

1 is running Debian 4 and is serving the purpose of a simple file-server(time saver for me serves for backups etc.).

And last but not least my laptop is running slackware 12. (experimental purposes :P)

I completely gave up on windows shortly after XP were released since I couldn't take no more with the expensive swiss cheese technology ;)
