Hi Everyone! Just want share my impression of Linux Mint - Bianca. In a word - GREAT. Everything works and I've had no surprises. This is very impressive. It's a joy to use.....I could go on and on.

Howdy. Well I've run Bianca for full day, and reinforce my earlier post. This is great stuff. So, here's some feedback (all good).

I suppose I really didn't believe everything was included...but, by cracky. it really is! I'm not new to Linux, and was prepared to spend the better part of a day tinkering about, (downloading, installing, rebooting, adjusting and changing) just to get a usuable Bianca. Well, it's all there, waiting to be used - I was shocked. The only tinkering necessary was to adjust the screen resolution, which is due to this clunker monitor I'm using.

One thing I could care less about is the "beauty", etc. Within an hour of installation of a new distro I usually have already changed everything and can't even remember (or care) what the original color-scheme was. Bianca is the exception - it really is pretty. I like it.

The new ("new" to me at least) Gnome, and menu is wonderful. While I've always liked Gnome, I prefer KDE - but this Gnome is something else. I really really like the menu.

Oh, one thing struck me as being especially great is the "Add/Remove" feature, which is new (to me). Good grief, how easy can it get? Being a devoted Opera fan, I noticed immediatly Opera wasn't included but within a minute - I had it.

So, I'm converted.

Remove the code names from the final releases. Not only is it a certain type of tacky, but you lose focus on your branding with is Linux Mint.

Hello to everybody here in the forum. I installed Mint a couple of days ago and I felt that I have to give my feedback to the people who make it possible for me to use a great Linux distro without much effords. SO - Great job people :D I'm so happy using Mint that it makes me want to scream. I don't think I'll ever install windows again. I guess that I'll just be looking for the next Mint version 8)
Keep up the good work. I'll try to contribute with testing, bug reporting and whatever else I can do to this great Product.

Cheers :!: :D

Well, I've been using Linux on and off (mostly on) for about five years. Without fail, everytime I installed a new distro be it SuSE, Mepis or PCLinuxOS as soon as the installation was finished I would have to jump to the forums and get help to fix something broken. But Not This Time. I installed Bianca yesterday and EVERYTHING WORKS. So I'll use my first forum post to just say THANKS for such a great job.
