ive recently converted to opensuse 12.1 32bit kde for one simple reason,stability.i made the move a few days ago,because i have been searching for a distro that suites me.ive been a faithful user of mint since 10.i felt it was time to move on.i have been talking to a family member who has introduced me to the linux world and he has been having nothing but issues with mint.i have been doing my own research on the web about the distros and the work being put into them and i have not liked what ive found.
it points out a main factor that stands out to me...the developers aim for user friendliness,which is nice,there main focus tends to be at that.thats where the problem begins.it doesnt mention anything about stability.i have reinstalled mint and ubuntu over 200 times,give or take,mostly due to operator errors,but,not always the case.i have had mint and ubuntu crash on me many times.got over it and switched my game plan.
i think mints primary focus should be on stability then everything else.and again,i am not disrespecting or hating on mint for their work,which is awesome.i think stability plays a more important role though.its easy to say that a distro is stable,but,its not certain.
this is more like a suggestion.....go for stability first and the rest later.
please do not take any offense to this post.
