First, thanks for creating Linux Mint, it is by far my favorite distro
Today I played with mintstick because I was going to update my laptop. I discovered that the progress bar does not show the transfer rate like I would prefer it did. So I played around with the code to make it happen. The progress bar now shows and updates "%complete KB/s" instead of the source and destination like before. Which I think looks a fair bit nicer.
I've made a github fork of it here: http://github.com/tbehan/mintstick
The thing is, I'm rather new at both python and contributing to an open-source project so I was hoping someone would be willing to take a look at it before I do a pull request. It's just a cosmetic change so it shouldn't cause any issues and the code change is very small.
Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
