How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My computer can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Cinnamon and ideal interface.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,—I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my hardware!—and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after Mint 15 is released.
Apologies to Elizabeth Barrett Browning
I like to have a spare OS on a separate drive to boot into if anything should go awry. Today I have installed no less than mageia, fedora, opensuse, sabayon, and a few others to my spare drive. Not one of them worked out of the box. Not one.
opensuse wins first prize for practical joke of the day. Not wanting to download a full 4.7GB DVD I chose the next best thing, a network installation CD. Of course, opensuse demands to be fed a URL to a repo, but there's no indication of what repos are available anywhere inside the iso... reboot and google...
Linux Mint! How do I love thee? Let me count the ways!
1. You work right out of the box.
