Some feedback and suggestions if I may...
I notice a new Mint has been released without some of the apps that differenciate Mint from its parent distro Ubuntu.
Why do this? It appears to an outsider that this release was rushed.
It seems to be the trend amongst the more popular distros to release often.
I dont agree with this philosophy.
Why not just release upgraded packages for the current stable until a new release is complete, ready for its userbase and bugfree?
In my opinion Ubuntu is doing itself longterm damage because of its "strategy" of releasing often...whether or not its ready. Anyone who has used Feisty will know what I mean.
Ubuntu and its community has a great many strengths that Mint could draw from build on and enhance. I wish Mint and its community all the very best and hope that my criticisms are taken as constructive. kind regards,
