What's the based security/update cycle for a Mint release?
Does it run along side Ubuntu's, in other words does support for it drop as soon as Ubuntu's does?
I only ask because I plan on running Mint 5 for awhile until they have time to fix some of the bug's in Intrepid or might be fixed in a couple of more of their releases.
I know the support drops for 8.04 which we all know Mint 5 is based on October 2009.
I was just planning on using ApTon to backup my cache and other system files just before Support Drops, so if I have to reinstall I'll have them all on disk.
Because the repo's for all of 8.04 will be gone.
I know this is trival to most, But mean's alot to others.... Thanks....
