it depends which machine you are talking about really; at work it is XP (ick!), on my laptop it is Bianca Beta 014, on my main machine at home it is XP (waiting til Bianca Final to upgrade it) and on my testing box it is Bianca Beta 014.

Dual boot Bea :D and windoze XP :shock: for my home machine. I have Bea working properly for now, so I'm just waiting for Bianca to become final before I upgrade. Although i do have an itchy finger to install the beta.

OSX for my laptop. Work is windoze XP...

I guess you can say I'm an OS whore... :twisted:

openSUSE and PCLOS right now. When Bianca goes gold, I will attempt to install it again (due to installation problems mentioned in another thread). I will have to redo my drive again in any case.

I currently have Bianca running on 2 machines. Recently, I reinstalled Ubuntu on one of the machines, went through 136 upgrades, in order to do a side-by-side comparison with Mint. That lasted about a day before I realized I didn't like the look and feel of Ubuntu, so I reinstalled Bianca.

There is no doubt that Ubuntu has set the bar for Linux Distros. Just look at the spin offs, Mint, Mepis, and now even Linspire to name a few; who can say what distro will be next. Canonical should be applauded for what it has done, not only for itself, but for the Linux community as well. But for me, at least for now, I'm sticking with Mint.

Clem, you and your associates have done a hell of a job here. I can hardly wait for the final release of Bianca.

Hello all fellow Minties,
Perhaps it would be interesting to post a link to our desktops in this topic.
And then take a poll for the most popular one.

So here is a link to my desktop. Care to vote?

Bianca Beta 014 as my main. I have a partition with Win XP because I'm hooked on Everquest 2.

I've run just about any other distro and this one is my favorite so far, keep up the good work Clem

1 x Mint "Barbara"
1 x Ubuntu 6.10
1 x SuSE Linux Professional 10
2 x OpenSUSE 10.2
1 x Windoze XP locked away into a virtual machine

That Ubuntu installation up there will soon have to go away to make room for my FreeBSD experiments :wink:

Debian Etch as primary, 3 others besides

Postby crusti on Thu Feb 15, 2007 4:16 pm

Debian Etch using XFCE 4.4 is my main OS for now.
Other installed:
Debian Etch with Gnome 2.16
openSUSE 10.2
Ubuntu 6.10
Linux Mint Bea
Linux Mint Bianca

Debian Etch with XFCE4.4 running mostly KDE apps is very nice, but there is instability somewhere in my machine that causes occasional total system lockups (and boy does that make me angry).

Recently I went scouting for other distributions that were simple to maintain and administer, and contained most of the common desktop functionality without much initial configuration. It's my aim to promote Linux to windows users in the form of an easy-to-use distro that could be previewed in a live CD/DVD. (It was also meant to help certain busy family members adopt a manageable OS.)

Stuff I've tried:

openSUSE 10.2: Looks good, but needed to configure support for multimedia, and this took about a half hour or so surfing the net for info and getting the right packages chosen in the package manager. The default way of picking an app from the menu shows too many apps, and that's confusing to new users. Still evaluating this system, but I put it on hold when I became minty fresh.

Ubuntu 6.10: Interesting approach to the user system, disabling root by default. Overall I liked the default Gnome and the one-app-per-job philosophy to get people started. I didn't like the fact that multimedia had to be hand-configured, and like openSUSE, they offered no help in the error message. Something like "The correct software is not installed. Install the correct software." Seriously, why not just write "Something is wrong. Time to panic."...

MEPIS: I used to run MEPIS before it switched to the Ubuntu repos. I burned the latest disc, and after I booted the disk I got a no-signal error on my monitor. Rebooted with basic video. Same. Can't really move on from there can we? No MEPIS for me.

Linux Mint: Hey! What's this! I can play a DVD?! Wow! And an MP3! Wow! I am absolutely chomping at the bit for the final Bianca. I seriously can't wait. I've been checking the forums more than once a day for any tidbit of news, and checking for a new beta which includes all the updates so I can burn copies and hand them out like free hits of crack.


One thing about the name...everyone has their opinion, but I think having a non-girly choice for a distro name might encourage some guys to try it. Having a name with wide appeal would certainly benefit Mint. Heck, something like Mint 2.2 is fine if the actual distro name is not splashed everywhere, like my main menu showing "Bianca". I like the name Bianca and I have no problem telling everyone I use Linux Mint, Bianca. But I would have a problem saying I use Barbie or Bea or Britny. Give a guy a chance, eh?
