Maybe it is just me but it seems the Mint forums contain much nicer people than those in the Ubuntu forums. I use Kubuntu right now just because there is no Mint KDE edition that fits on one CD yet and Gnome's lack of options annoys me. So I have posted two polls on ubuntu forums thus far. My first two poll ever.
Well people started telling me they didn't like the options. The poll was for information I wanted to know so they proceeded to scold me for tons of "bad options" I had in the poll.
My first true impression of the Linux community was based on the Mint forum but I am starting to see that this was a Mint community attitude that differed from Ubuntu attitude. Sorry this is a long rant but just wanted to say I miss Mint .
