Let me start of by congratulating the Linux Mint team. This is by far the best default install I have had with any system. I have not felt the need to do any sort of tweaking as of yet, and everything is working the way I expect it to. How novel it is when media on websites actually works!
With that said, I think it would be nice if you would accommodate users who may not have an Internet connection available to them. There are several people at my school here who have desktop machines, and the only way they can get software is by shuttling it back and forth on USB sticks. If there was a Linux Mint disc 2, with at the bare minimum all the packages needed to compile software from source, that would make things allot easier. Other nice things to add might be Wine, Beryl, and perhaps some games. Thanks, and keep up the good work!
