Praise for Linux Mint

Postby ardchoille on Thu Jul 19, 2012 3:31 pm

I have been using Linux as my sole OS since 2001 and have been using Ubuntu as my sole Linux distro since 2005. I installed Linux Mint (maya) as a dual-boot option last week and I'm highly impressed.

My machine is an Acer Aspire One and I use Linux for everything from surfing the internet to editing graphics.

* Linux Mint seems much faster than what I've seen in Ubuntu over the years
* I haven't seen a single problem with Mint
* I love the mint menu
* I gave up on gnome shell, too many headaches, and maya is awesome
* Everything worked out-of-the-box

Seriously, mad props to the Linux Mint team. I've found a new default distro and I recommend it to everyone.

My experience has been the same. If you're a KDE fan give Mint 13 KDE a shot. It's working great for me, I use it most of the time now.

Amen, I've been extolling the virtues of it myself.
