I have been trying Mint Bea and like it very much. Congratulations to the developers!
But I have a very basic question about it. Basically, Mint is a "much improved" Ubuntu.
Are the improvements in the 'core' packages, or just in the Gnome packages?
Why I ask, the repositories contain the Ubuntu KDE packages - at least, that is what appears to be the case. If I was to install KDE from the repositories, would I have a distro which is identical to KUbuntu (as would be the case if your improvements were not of the core packages), or would it be 'KUbuntu-improved?
I can't find the answer to this on your web site.
Being on capped broadband, I really would like to know, so that I can decide whether to use some of my limited broadband to download the KDE stuff.
hmmm.... keithp, it may seem that way, but its not exactly that way... from what i know, the Kubuntu in the main repo will not snagly fit in the mint. there are some who have tried, but im not really sure if they were really succesful...
im may not be as helpful, but both ways, have their respective risk..
