I do and my opinion hasn't changed even the slightest ... the more i use 12 the more i find wrong with it .... which is EXACTLY why i did not try putting Mint on a USB for my friend i tried 4 other distros .
i fully believe mint 13 will be better ... but in the mean time 12 is TRULY a pile of junk , at least for me on THIS laptop

Why is it going backwards so quickly I seriously don't understand it
