I've been a Mint user since I tried it out after running into usability issues in Mepis a number of years ago.
I've been relying on Mint 10 since it was released and though I've installed and tested other distro's and also many of the subsequent Mint editions I always fell back to the solid performance and usability/flexibility I found in my customized Mint 10. But that was until a few weeks ago when I installed Mint 14 KDE! I absolutely love this Mint version. My favorite thing years ago about Mepis (before I moved to Mint) was the KDE desktop and though Gnome has its advantages I missed a number of things in KDE. Now I've got the best of both worlds (Mint and KDE) and I think it finally surpassed my MINT 10. I want to give the biggest thank you to everyone involved in both the KDE project and MINT!!!!!!
