I downloaded the Bianca, after having problems with Bea and gave it a try. I like the system initially although I had some problems, mostly due to my lack of knowledge, I suppose.
Bianca found my wireless, So I got internet fairly quickly, although it took me awhile to find out how to enable the connections via networkmanager, found my printer, but not the one with cups, just the local one so I am unable to monitor the toner levels and do other tweaks to my hp psc 2510 printer. I could not find my 2nd (wife's) computer on the network, it was late so I gave up, consequently she cannot print to the printer. I edited the /etc/cups/cupsd.conf but it still couldn't print to the host printer. So for now to keep things flowing smoothly I am still using Ubuntu 6.06, where everything is still fully set up. I am finding the single panel hard to grasp on my first try at it, having all the different classes and links graphical is all new to me. I am still too tied to the Gnome/Ubuntu look and it will take some time to acquaint myself to the new interface.
All that being said, I think Bianca has great potential, should be a great hit, eventually work for even someone as slow as myself. I think it will be a more natural fit for someone coming from windows, where they work in a total graphical environment, and the icons and all will seem a part of what they conceive a desktop should look like, so if I can learn how to set it up easily then it would be the most natural switch to propose to my acquaintances that I will try to entice to switch to Linux. Most newbies find the learning curve too much to switch to Ubuntu, but they may be more willing to make the switch to LinuxMint..
Great job, keep up the good, hard work!
