I am now running Bodhi Linux 1.4 on my sons laptop. I plan on running a bunch of the kids programs and it gives me a lightweight OS that has fit all of my needs. This is what I love about Linux. There is always something out there for everybody.

As a main OS I use Linux Mint 12 with Mate. It's in multi-boot with Fedora 16(Gnome 3) and Windows 7 Home Premium. I plan to install Open SUSE tomorrow

I run Quelitu 12.04 (Jazz). I has a Heads-Up Display, most of the Lubuntu packages, an Advanced Config Center, a Maintenance Center, and several Ultralight Utilities.

It actually uses less RAM than Lubuntu (75 MB installed using defaults).

Even better, it has several installation options, including an Enlightenment interface (Quelitu Jazz) with animation and desktop effects to boot!

Can you run Android 4.0 ICS in virtualbox?

I have a different OS on each computer. Mint 13 Cinnamon on this desktop, Mint 12 LXDE on my hp-mini netbook, Win 7 on my DELL laptop, UNR on an EeePC set-up as a music player, and an old Toshiba laptop with ubuntu kept as a spare. My office computer runs win 7. Android 4.0 on my phone.

I use virtualbox for testing new OS - a quick count finds fifteen iso files to choose from.

Zorin 6 RC...the word is AWESOME....i will be re-installing when the final release comes out :D

Oh, and you don't have to keep the windows "look"...there are MANY other choices for the style of the menu as well...
It's a super smooth, very polished version of Ubuntu 12.04 using an AWN panel and gnomenu...a very simple solution for those that like gnome 3 but do not care for unity...(actually i don't mind unity but kind of like this better) :mrgreen:

I love mint too but i am afraid to have to admit i have found a new love :lol:
Still enjoy the mint forums though and hanging out here :wink:

A friend of mine recently said: yeah...that's the trouble with linux...too many choices :shock:

Yes, it's not official but gives you the experience anyhow: http://www.webupd8.org/2012/02/android- ... d-ice.html

Not really a full-fledged laptop OS yet but fun to play with.
Thank you for this thread. That’s all I can say. You most definitely have made this forum into something special. You clearly know what you are doing, you’ve covered so many bases. Thanks!

Ok time to break out the list :P

At Home:

Laptop 1 - Joli OS (soon to be LM 13 MATE)
Laptop 2 - Proxlinux 2
Dekstop - Linux Mint 13 Cinnamon (64)

At Work:

Desktop 1 - Windows vista
Desktop 2 - Ubuntu 11.10
Virtual Machine - Proxlinux 2 (testing and reviewing currently
Server - CentOS 5.8

On Android:

Debian wheezy
Ubuntu 9.10


Thats for now anyway, I'm interested in seeing how to port Linux Mint onto Android but fiorst it would have to be ARMv7 compatable.

*edited as new machines are up and running now :D

Primary computer, a laptop:
Mint 9 Xfce for almost everything I do;
Windows Vista for Minecraft (because the laptop's graphics are not fully supported in Linux) and Netflix and other occasional uses for Windows;
Xubuntu 12.04 RC in the "sandbox" partition - will be changed to Mint 13 Xfce as soon as the RC comes out.

Secondary computer, a desktop, formerly my primary computer:
Windows XP for Minecraft and for color printing of photos;
Mint 11 Gnome for messing around;
Mint 9 Xfce for messing around.

Multimedia laptop (my wife's old computer):
Mint 10 Gnome with Guayadeque and conky for playing the mp3's from my ripped cd's over the stereo
Windows 7 for Netflix on the TV and a Minecraft server

Kids desktop:
Windows XP for most stuff
Mint 9 Xfce for Minecraft

(You can probably figure out I like Xfce and Minecraft!)

Running Windows 7 dual boot with mint 13.

Mostly I use win since I can't get the sound blaster 3di on my alienware m14x r2 to work under Linux.
