Just my two cents.....and big a thank you for thinking INSIDE the box
After years of frustration in multiple jobs when you express your frustrations and what not to your management team, and all they *ever* tell you (and purely for nothing more than to hopefully get you out of their hair instead of actually helping you with your issues) is the (ugh!) dreaded, "...think outside the box..." :
It's very refreshing that someone has put the time and effort into making an Ubuntu-based distro pretty much ready to go "out of the box", so that the user community doesn't have to waste so much time (ugh!) "thinking outside the box" to resolve common issues (that was very painful for me to say, god I *hate* that saying!). Instead, we get to spend pretty much all our time INSIDE OUR BOX having fun computing again (take THAT corporate world, I'm INSIDE THE BOX - where I *should* be!)..........lol
Just wanted to express my heartfelt thanks for a great distro. Can't wait for Bea 2.1 to come out, where RealPlayer will be removed and MPlayer will be included out-of-the-box. That'll make Mint even better than it already is!
