Any other DE distros for Mint?

Postby molom on Sat Jan 05, 2008 7:17 pm

I have found that we've reached the peak in our distros, which is very good. These are the main distros that we have:
- Mint Gnome
- Mint KDE
- Mint XFCE
- Mint Fluxbox
- Mint E17

I know there are those other editions like light version and mini version, but I'm talking about DE editions. Is there any other editions people would like, I don't have any other popular DE that would suit Mint. Tell me if you do have one.

Cheers,
molom

Enough with the DE variations. We need to move into like having a Christian Edition and an Educational Edition and a Gaming Edition and a Music & Video Creation Edition :wink:

How about the so-called ROX Desktop?

I don't see much of a point of the ROX desktop. It's ugly. I think the Mint Fluxbox edition takes care of the ROX desktop.

It is not quite true. I use it with frugalware for a while. And it can be configured to be nice looking. Beauty comes from people's hardworking. I don't think Fluxbox is beautiful. But we can make it be. And in fact, sometimes we have to ignore its looking outside in order to get some efficiency out of box. Of course, E17 is an exception. And I am waiting for your Mint E17 beta come out! :D

I can understand you and you are right. I haven't seen ROX in a distro yet. But I've heard that Fluxbuntu uses Fluxbox and ROX simultaneously. But I don't think there anymore developers that want to start a project. I've already posted up a post about someone starting a BSD Mint distro and no one has taken the privilege of developing such a magnificent distro. Nice to hear your opinion.

In fact, there used to be such a to-develop distro called http://roxos.sunsite.dk/, but it seems that the project has been dead...

It is just my idea, doesn't matter that no one will develop it. Maybe someday I will do. :D

Thanks for your info about fluxbuntu, I will take a look at it later.
