Using Mint Bea as a Live CD and its working well! Every video and music has worked so far. I hear that the installer is the same as Ubuntu's? I had trouble with upgrading to Edgy and I have a broken version of Ubuntu on my hda2 partition. I presume that Mint would read my existing partitions and install accordingly? I have been using PCLOS (hdb) and its been very good overall. I hope you're forum evolves as well as PCLOS. If Mint proves to be as smooth as it looks so far, there will be less threads on fixing things that should just work.
So far so good! I will probably do a HD install once the complete version of Bea comes out.
A great distro!
