Couldn't run the livecd, my screen goes blank ("no signal", black in fact) during the boot process so I can't test it.
LM9 is currently installed on the same system so it is something in the new release. Also Ubuntu 10.10 had no problem. nVidia 9300 inside.

I would type my password and the first three characters would appear and then nothing . . . no more characters appeared in the password area. From there, the window just froze. I didn't have any difficulties with LM9.
I reinstalled Linux Mint 10 a second time. This time I turned off the mouse pad on my laptop and the installation went without a hitch. I believe when I entered the original password during the first installation attempt, the mouse pad was on and I inadvertently added additional characters that should not have been there. At any rate, things are going well and I'm very pleased with this edition.

My experience on 3 different PCs is that Ubuntu 10.10 is very solid where 10.04 AND Mint9 had issues (for example, Radeon AGP video card).
Most of these are kernel issues, and since Mint uses the Ubuntu kernel (afaik?) there 'shouldn't' be a difference here.
as for performance improvement, i wonder how much of that is simply due to a clean install, and/or kernel and upstream optimisations again.
is there a complete list of the changes Mint makes to Ubuntu anywhere? I think it's important we know exactly what we're running, after all isn't that one of the great points of open source?
(on the flip side, every Ubuntu release seems to have a major area of broken hardware support, what's the common factor this time? i'm not seeing the problems yet myself, but this is probably a good place to start https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MaverickMeerkat ... n%20Issues - some may be fixed by Mint10, clarification needed!)
Smiff2 wrote:agreed, and i don't like the direction ubuntu is taking with it's cloud/one/store either. a proper list of changes would help everyone decide what exactly to use, even if it's parts of mint and parts of other projects like elementary and sabayon.
