I have MInt 12 32 bit installed on a quad core intel pc. It is so slow that I will look for something else. Slower than any version of KDE that I have seen. Firefox 8.0 just crawls.
My day-to-day production distro is Ubuntu 10.10. I also keep updated Mepis 11 kde, and crunchbang statler. Mint 12, which I wanted to like, gets lost in the dust of any one of the three mentioned.
there more to yer problem than meets yer eye. i have m12 running on a quad core intel and it flies. i also have it on 3 very different laptops from an old single core amd to a pair of dual core notebooks toshiba and sony, all running intel chips. whilst there are hardware incompatibilities on one of my boxes, they still all perform quite well and just as fast as m10 OR win7. look deeper than m12 ........
