Congratulations on your new release!

Mint is really the ultimate ease-of-use distro, right up there with Ubuntu (falls lower because of still-Byzantine media management, etc.), PCLOS, and openSuSE. But it's faster than Ubuntu/openSuSE, easier than all three, and overall quite superb. Hate to say it though, but openSuSE has everyone lapped in the design department! Not to say that Ubuntu and it's fleshy theme is anywhere near the loveliness of Mint.

Just installed Cassandra and everything is looking good. I love that minty and Frenchy look. :wink: (goes well with a bottle of champaigne). The installer/partitioner is much improved and I had no problems. Grub also was kind and recognized my other 2 Linux distros.

The 4 partitions (ext3) that Mint is not using show up as mounted partition icons on the desktop. Never had that before - is it normal for them to be there?

Update: Got rid of the partition icons with mintDesktop

For those how want to take if for a "test drive", try the VMware image.

And yes, Clem you and your group are putting together a very "Sweet" distro! You're making it easier for people to escape the "Borg" ;-) I've used Mint to bring a good number of people in from the Dark Side !!!!!!!!! Keep up the OUTSTANDING work, but don't get a big head :lol:

Seriously you've got a sweet distro that remains "clean" and isn't a "kitchen sink" distro.

Again for people wanting to take it for a test drive, he's a shot of the VMware image. All that is needed is VMware Player if you don't have Workstation.
