Ok, so I switched from Ubuntu 12.04LTS over to Mint 15 MATE and couldn't be happier. Then I see Robbie Ferguson on Category 5 TV talking about Point Linux OS with the MATE desktop and it looks pretty cool as well. My question is, would there be any advantage to switching to Point Linux over Mint MATE since they're both using the same desktop but with Point Linux you'd be a bit closer to the Debian roots that both Distros have.
I've installed Point Linux OS on my daughter's old Dell L866r and it looks pretty decent, runs pretty well even on this older machine and was reasonable easy to install but I'm really lovin' my Mint 15 MATE even though it'll lose support in a few months. Guess I should have went with Mint 13 for long term support but I really don't know how to roll Mint 15 back to 13 or if I'd even really want to.
Oh well, just wanted to see if anyone else has had any "problems" about Distros like this and what they ended up doing about it. Thanks for letting me air this out a bit.
