i tried version 1.0 and it was pretty good (and a real 10 minute installer wow) now 2.0 is based on ubuntu 7.04 so it should feel a lot better.
can anyone try it and tell us how it goes and how it compares to mint
This version of freespire should be a taste of what's coming with Ubuntu 7.10 and CNR.
CNR was slow before, i don't know if its better now. A plus was the inclussion of commercial software and some other goodies, but sometimes it wasn't as intuitive or organized like the mint software portal is. Maybe this has improved ?
I must say i love the mint soft portal but the first thing i install after a fresh mint installation is "gnome-app-install" (i think). It just feels easier and has much more software (at this stage) to satisfy a newcomer from windoze. Also, having it along side the mint soft portal + getdeb.net + klik + synaptic is what makes mint rock.
Having more choices is really better than trying to substitute one for the other.
maybe a .mint file to re-enable it would be better than searching for it in synaptic?
am not into kde much thats why i love my Mint Cassandra
