This is what I think a lot of people miss when they dismiss more user-friendly versions of OS. In some cases you may have to go through extra hurdles (usually for security reasons), but everything should still be possible.proxima_centauri wrote:The great thing about Distro's designed for newbies is that generally you can still do advanced configurations and tweaking with them, so it's not like you lose anything.
Which is a good reason to support a "all encompasing" mint install where the main edition and all community editions are on one liveCD and can all be loaded at the same time. Obviously this would come out after the community editions were released.FedoraRefugee wrote:Instead, why not install KDE and Xfce alongside Gnome. Then you can boot into these DEs with the same install. Learn how to use all of them, it doesnt matter if you think one is "better." You want to become competent with all of them.

It seems harder and harder for me to see where one distro is simply better than all others. Each of my favorites has some very strong points. Mostly it seems like a matter of taste.
