ok with 93 pages of replies I don't have the time to read every post. So my question is simple What is the Mint Cafe? I am new to the Linux Mint community (migrated from fedora and ubuntu) and am trying to get to grips on what everything is etc. Can someone please explain a little more clearly for me please?

Welcome to the Mint Cafe,steveking,
Glad you asked :)
tI would suggest that you click on the 1st (introductory) page. It tells all about it, how it started etc.
I surely appreciate your interest and I hope that you may start some new activity here and add some fun to our humdrum life.
Would also be willing to help in any way I can.

Again,
thank you for your interest.

Greetings,
npap

I don't want bread that has been 'cuddled' by a penguin

. . . who knows where Tux has been - or if they washed their hands.

Some good news at last for Americans!

Assuming one has a job:

"After a mere five minutes on the job, an American worker has earned enough money to be able to buy a beer. We’re #1!"

They list the average price of a beer at $1.80 at a package or grocery store. Around here a good CRAFT beer can be had for $1.40 to $1.60 if bought in a 6-pack. Must be higher taxes in most states.

Read more: http://moneyland.time.com/2012/10/09/no ... zz28vFoYde

BTW, President Obama's favorite beer is Yuengling (largest US owned brewery).
Romney is a teetotaler as his religion forbids alcohol and caffeine.

"Never refuse to do a kindness unless the act would work great injury to yourself, and never refuse to take a drink- under any circumstances." - Mark Twain

Hello Ken,
This is good news indeed. :)
But how long does it take him to get back on the job after he's had the booze? :lol:
Cheers and Bottoms up!

Hi npap.
Good point about beer and work!

More good news... It takes 0 minutes of work to afford the best computer operating system. Mint is free!
Drinks are also free here in the café (drink responsibly).

Well Ken,
The MintBar stock has been depleted since the last time you were there. We need a bartender too. :)
It was unfortunate that you had to quit the job. We can't find any good bartenders to work for just a glass of beer and peanuts
The economic crisis has hit the Mint Cafe too.
And though you can get Mint free as a free beer, the booze is not free anymore. :)

The IMF is also threatening to close us down permanently if we don't apply severe austerity measures. :lol:

Let's hope we will get a chance to re-organize, otherwise we may have to go back to the Mintbar of the past.
Clem couild only afford this in the beginning. Remember?
