I will be handing disks with mint on it to people i know. you have done a great job and i will do my part to get you some donations. i have seen and played with vista and i have to say (it really sucks). how much more can the world take of microsoft before we crack. the distro is beautifully laid out, graphically appealing, and hardworking. you have done what linux guys should have done years ago. i don't care about programming or c++ or anything like that, i just wanted an os that i don't have to worry about and you have met that need for myself and others that are tired of windows. i originally didn't like gnome but this distro really capitalizes on ease of use. once again thanks and keep it up. just don't get a corporate mentality and screw up all of your hard work.
