I don't know if it's a good index...
So this is two and a half years that I have tested on GNU / Linux (opensuse, ubuntu, Mandriva) and I stayed for several months under LinuxMint Cinnamon.
I'm not an informatic killer but I work all day on my computer (I'm a french journalist). So I need a simple, comprehensive, effective and stable distribution.
In a simple word, LinuxMint!
I also appreciate the warmth, no brainer and cool (they do not take up as I have sometimes seen on other french forums ... as Fedora and Debian, but I also want to note that I enjoyed the forum alionet when I was under opensuse, my first love ...).
So a word to the team working on the development of LinuxMint: Thanks !
